1. Macayo's Green Corn Tamales with Baja Sauce

Source: Macayo's, Phoenix, Arizona

Makes 12 tamales


Baja Sauce
2 pounds cream cheese
8 ounces half-and-half
2 ounces canned jalapeņos, sliced
Dash salt

4 1/2 pounds corn masa
1 can (8 ounces) creamed corn
1 dozen tamale husks
12 ounces canned green chiles, diced and drained
3 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
Parchment paper


For the sauce, place all ingredients in blender and mix thoroughly until smooth.
For the tamales, mix masa and corn thoroughly until masa is smooth. Lay tamale husks flat. Using a spatula, spread some corn masa mixture onto the husk. Place some chiles on the masa, then top with cheese. The ingredients should be divided evenly among the 12 tamale husks. Take each side of husk and fold, overlapping the sides. Wrap in parchment paper.
Place the tamales in a perforated double boiler, or a colander in a large pot. Add enough water to pot to produce steam. Do not let water touch tamales. Cover and bring to boil. Do not let the pot boil dry.
Steam tamales for 45 minutes to an hour. To test for doneness, unwrap a tamale. If the outside of the masa is firm and does not stick to the husk, the tamale is done.
Remove tamales from steam and let sit for about 10 to 15 minutes, until firm. Do not microwave. Top with sauce.

2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise

Zest of 1/2 lemon

Put all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and mix until creamy smooth.
