Binging with Babish: Tamales from Coco

Pixar's latest laser-guided annihilator of heartstrings, Coco, starts off in the sunny Mexican town of Santa Cecilia, where 12-year-old Miguel's abulea does two things very well: staving off music of any kind, and slinging tamales. These little packets of south-of-the-border love can be tricky and time-consuming, but make for the perfect Oscar party snack next week when we watch Coco inevitably lose the trophy to Boss Baby.

*If you leave your pork to marinate overnight, be sure not to leave it in foil and use an enamel or glass vessel instead.

    I made tamales today using this masa recipe! The texture is perfect. I'll probably add a little more salt - but thats all personal preference :3 Thank you, Andrew!
