Tamales and Nopales
This is one of the most delicious plates for me in the Mexican cuisine.
Tamales are based upon corn with a Corn Dough and a Corn Skill, like almost 75% of the Mexican kitchen.
Furthermore they’re stiffed with various ingredients, like peppers, chicken or anything else you would like. After stiffing the Corn you should cook the tamales for at least 1 hour before the Tamale is ready.
Nopales are vegetables picked from a Cactus with for me a small comparisation with beans.
Only they are slightly more sour then these. Normally you can prepare them with cooking for a little time and mix them together with a few ingredients, for example peppers, tomatoes and Tamales :D…
If you are in Mexico you really should try it, if you’re somewhere else, good luck with finding one in a very mexican restaurant or shop.
These photos of Tamales and Nopales are edited within the Adobe Lightroom program and I’ve used only the adjustments sliders.
