Roasted Poblano Tamales
- Prep Time: 20 Minutes (Total time: 1 Hour 20 Minutes)
- Serving Size: 26
- 52 Corn Husks
- Tamale Dough
- 2 tablespoons Chopped Fresh Epazote Leaves
- 10 Poblano Chiles, Roasted, Seeded, Deveined And Chopped
- 1 cup KRAFT Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
SOAK corn husks in hot water for 30 minutes or let stand overnight in room-temperature water. Prepare Tamale Dough recipe, adding the chopped epazote leaves with the flour.
ASSEMBLE tamales by spreading 2 Tbsp. of the masa mixture (tamale dough) into a 3x2-inch rectangle down the center of each corn husk, leaving about 2 inches bare at the top of the husk. Spoon 1 Tbsp. of the peppers and 1 tsp. of the cheese down the center of the masa mixture on each husk; fold over the sides of the husk and both ends to completely enclose the filling.
STAND tamales in a steamer basket in large pot filled 1/4 full with water. (Make sure tamales are not touching the water.) Bring water to boil; cover. Steam 1 hour or until tamales pull away from the corn husks, adding more water to the pot when necessary. Remove tamales from steamer basket; cool slightly. Top with TACO BELL® HOME ORIGINALS® Thick 'N Chunky Salsa just before serving, if desired.
