I've always wanted to - tis a bit of a faff though, and the proper ingredients are hard to get....hope you get some positive replies.

I am open to cheating somehow, I could even eat them from a can, but it must be possible!

I haven't even been able to find a proper version in a restaurant and I've been hankering after them for years.

ok blush what is a tamale ?

Right - I just had a look on the bbc good food recipies page - they sound lovely, I think I'll try that recipe for tea and get back to you

they are greasy spicy fattening stodge really

but great comfort food, I like them filled with beans and cheese but you can get beef, chicken etc - it's a sort of dough, filled as above, then wrapped in corn husks and steamed

the canned ones are really vile so why I sometimes wake up drooling over them is anyone's guess blush

I have no idea what they are or how to make them but you've made me hanker after the old ceebeebies lunchtime song grin
