Costa Rican Christmas Tamal-
Today's recipe of the day is by Chef Cristian J. Escalante (co-writer of Being Latino (comida) facebook fan page)
1. Soak the flour in water and cook it with a little salt one day before making the tamales.
2. next day make a dough.
3. Boil the carrots, potatoes and meat in separate pots, seasoning with black pepper, cumin, coriander and salt.
4. Once this is done add the water from the meat you just cooked to the dough until you get a good consistency.
5. add salt and the potatoes, previously pureed in a blender.
6.Wash the plantain or banana leaves.
8. Cut them into 16 by 14 inch pieces.
9. On each piece place two tablespoonfuls of dough.
10. On top of the dough place a tablespoonful of rice, a piece of meat, some chicharron, a slice or two of carrots, some peas, coriander and a strip of sweet pepper.
11. Fold the leaf into a rectangular shape, making sure no part of the tamal is exposed.
12. Tie the bundle carefully and securely with string (pabilo).
13. place them in salted, boiling water for about one hour.
14. Unwrap them and they are ready to serve. Provecho!!
