Ingredients:
Tamale Wrappers:
9 corn husks
Masa Dough:
2 cups almond flour
1/3 cup arrowroot powder
½ cup butter or lard
½ teaspoon baking powder
Optional: 1 ½ teaspoons corn extract
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon cumin

Instructions:

Bring a large stock pot of water to a boil and turn off the heat. Add the corn husks and place a lid on top and allow husks to soak for 20-30 minutes. Remove from the water and dry the husks.

While husks are soaking, gently mix all the masa dough ingredients together until well-combined.

Spread out the corn husks and fill each with a scoop of masa dough and chili pork. Flatten with a spoon and gently roll up like a burrito.

Carefully place each tamale in a steamer basket secured in a large stock pot. Steam with the lid on for 35-45 minutes.

Remove from the oven and when cool enough, open a tamale and serve with optional diced avocado, sour cream and minced scallion.

Serve between 9, storing any leftovers in a glass container for up to 3 days.
