Tamales and tortillas stuffed with beans? They look YUMMY!
I have been enjoying he Mexican corn husk tamales I can buy in MN. I prefer them over the typical Honduran banana leaf kind.I wonder what is the reason for the stuffing of the tortillas? Easier to transport/sell? I suppose.
The corn wrapped food could be tamales as Michelle suggested, or a type of empanada in corn husk. The tortillas look like pupusas that are filled with beans. I don't know for sure. Is there a prize if I win?
all I know is that it looks yummy...and the tortillas need that cream that we had when we were up in the frontier.anna CCC
Hey, where's the creama?It's pupusa and tamale de elote(we got this info from Pastor Joe Lugo)He's hungry now!shannon
Oh, you guys are good! The stuffed tortillas are called pupusas or empanadas, and they might be stuffed with beans, chicken, or pork. They are a little dry - crema is definitely a good idea!The little corn-husk wrapped thingies are called ticucos, locally (I'm not too sure of the spelling on that). They are like a poor man's tamale, as they use beans in place of the meat and veggies usually found in tamales.No prizes on this blog, Laurie, but if I ever offer one, and you win, at least I can send it on the bus! Howdy all you CCCers! Come on down and have lunch with me again soon!
Son pasteles? No, no son pasteles.Son tamales? No, no son tamales...A mi me gustan las pupusas! (It's a song!

I think the leaf gives it flavor as it cooks, I will ask my suegra...
