Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays of the year. Dinner is great - but it’s what my family does with the leftovers that makes my Thanksgiving special to me. My grandma has been using leftover thanksgiving turkey to make turkey tamales for as long as I can remember. As my siblings, cousins and I got older, my grandma started to let us join in the fun of preparing them!
Cooking tamales can be a difficult and time consuming process, but practice makes perfect. Follow this simple online recipe for directions on how to prepare traditional Mexican tamales. If you’d like to add a Thanksgiving twist like my family does, fill your tamales with turkey meat as opposed to beef or chicken :)
