This is how tamales look when they are cooking.
This is how tamales look when they are cooking.

I am going to talk about tamales. They are made of corn husks, maseca and any filling you’d like in the middle such as chicken, pork, or cheese. There are also sweet tamales which are just dough and sugar,  but they can have any flavor you want. There are some that are made of strawberry and pineapple. I chose to talk about tamales because in my culture, it is something we make for special occasions. This food is made on Christmas, Birthday parties, First communions, ect. My mom learned from her mom and sisters and she is trying to pass it on to me and my sister. Also, I feel like this food brings my family together.
