Eat! Super Bowl Eats Day 4: Fried Tamale On A Stick, Oh My!

2 Feb

I don’t think one can ask for anything more delicious when it comes to these bite size beauties.

These  tamale remix is small in size, but mega in flavor. For day 4 of Super Bowl Eats, I give you……..

Fried Tamale on A Stick


  • 1 Pound Prepared Taco Meat
  • 3 Cups Masa Harina
  • 3 Cups Warm Water
  • 1/4 Cup Butter
  • Oil for frying


Make your favorite taco meat, whether it be with Old El Paso seasoning from a packet or a homemade spice blend with sauteed peppers and onions. Allow to cool.

Prepare tamale dough by mixing butter and masa harina and salt, then slowly adding the water. The dough should become wet and moldable. It should be around the consistency of peanut butter.

Flatten some dough in your hand, then add a spoonful of your taco meat, then wrap the dough around the meat forming a ball.

Steam your tamale balls for about two hours.

Remove the balls from the steamer, dust with flour, and fry for a few minutes until browned on all sides.

Serve with salsa.
