So I decided to take it behind the scenes and show you how it all goes down. It was a rainy day here in Long Beach and I wasn’t interested in going out. Gia called to order 2 dozen 2Mex Tamales and it was the perfect project for a rainy day

This was my second attempt at Ustreaming a live cooking show. The first attempt was a 6 hour Thanksgiving Extravaganza, complete with video & sound problems and lots of cursing (sorry Mom!)

Next I mix up the masa and also add pumpkin, brown sugar & cinnamon. Then I separate and soak the corn husks. After that its time to start rolling tamales!
