Cutting board filled with stacked tamales.

Our team has been fascinated with how to use pork cheeks and came up with a super tasty tamale filling.

We have been testing corn husks as wrappers vs. banana leaves and although both have great results, we are drawn to the banana leaf for this recipe. We will highlight Masienda Heritage masa as an ingredient you will want to have in your pantry.
