El Salvadorean Tamale (Home cooked in SF)

My BFF Edelmira gave me some chicken tamales that her mom made. I had one for breakfast this morning and it was so yummy! It was one of the moistest tamales that I’ve ever tasted. I just needed some Tapatio! It also had beans and green chiles.

The difference between El Salvadorean tamales and Mexican tamales, you asked?

El Salvadorean tamales are wrapped in a banana leaf before steaming while Mexican tamales are wrapped in corn husk.

I love them both!

Thanks, Edelmira and mom for the delicious Nicaraguan treats! xoxo
