Chile for Tamales

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This is a wonderful marinade for pork tamales. Just blend the chilies with some water and oregano, and mix with pork before assembling tamales.

INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):


  • Wash dried peppers and remove stems and seeds. Place in a blender or food processor with the water, oregano, garlic, and a pinch or two of salt.
  • Blend on high until peppers are thoroughly pureed, pulsing occasionally. Adjust seasoning with salt, if needed.
