TO MAKE OUR MASA YOU WILL NEED:

-A MIXING BOWL
-3.5 CUPS OF CORN FLOUR OR 1KG (You can use MASECA).
-3 CUPS OF WARM WATER
-SALT TO TASTE (WE USED 3 SPOONS OF SALT).
-2.5 CUPS OF OUR RED CHILE SALSA (SEE BELOW FOR SALSA).
-3 pinch of baking powder
-2 TO 3 CUPS OF OILVE OIL
MIX UNTIL YOU GET A NON STICKY MASA

CHILE SALSA:

-6 Chiles Cascabel (Cascabel Pepper)
-2 Chiles pasilla or pisado (Pasilla pepper)
-1 garlic clove
-3 cups of the same water you used to boil the chiles in.
-Cumin to taste (we used 2 spoons of cumin).
First remove the seeds from the peppers then bring them to a boil. Next add the chiles and the rest of the ingredients into a blender.

JACKFRUIT “MEAT”:

-2 CANS OF JACKFRUIT COOKED WITH THE CHILE SALSA.
-RINSE AND REMOVE SEEDS FROM THE JACKFRUIT.
-LET SIMMER FOR ABOUT 30 MIN.

SALSA FOR TAMALES:

-2 jalapeños
-5 tomatoes
-1/2 onion
-A handful of fresh cilantro
Cook the ingredients expect the cilantro for 10 min at medium heat then blend the ingredients, finally add the fresh cilantro.

TAMAL LEAVES (CORN HUSK)

-1 package of hojas para tamales (corn husk).
Soak the laves overnight or 2 hours before using them.

PREPARATION OF TAMALES:

-Grab leaves and add the MASA and Jackfruit or beans in the middle fold them and close.
-Once you have all your tamales ready place them in a casserole with about 2 cups of water in the bottom.
-Cover them and bring them to a boil.
-Then reduce heat to low and let them cook for about 1.5 to 2 hours.
-How to know when they are ready? peel them and if the tamal comes right off you are good to go. Some tamales might take longer depending on how thick you make them.

We made about 30 tamales, but you can make more. We made ours thick.

Thank you.

  1. Love love love….I’d just use half the masa to make rajas con queso as well. The Chao vegan cheese is perfect for them…..soooooo good! Gonna try this recipe TODAY tfs

    1. oooooo rajas yuummm… my grandma suggested to make rajas but I was like maybe for another video heheh

  2. Favorite video from you so far. I come from a Mexican family and it would be so amazing to cook “authentic” dishes with them but vegan! Nice job. Hoped they all liked your recipe.

  3. Neto se te olvidó subirlo al canal de español. Subelo así. 😉
    Me puso feliz el ver a tu mami y tus abuelitas ayudándote a hacer los tamales 🤗🤗🤗🌸🌸🌸. Son unas amores 😍😍😍. Y pa que veas que es una friega hacerlos 😣. Y que en sólo un instante te los comes. Pero la delicia de comerlos es única.😋😋
    Los voy a preparar en estos días. Porque ahí tengo unas hojas de tamales que tienen tiempo pero ahora van a ser mis los primeros tamales veganos 🤗🌱.
    Bendiciones a tu familia 🙏🙏🙏🙏😘😘😘

  4. Wow… Neto.. Just wow.. Where do i start? You are creating vegan history I will forever use this recipe for my whole life and I love you so much you have came such a long way love how you do your videos now Spanish and English cuz I love learning Spanish to estoy my contento

  5. I make tamales every year with my grandma since I was small this is going to be a new treat.. a lot of oil but if people only knew how much animal lard is used on traditional tamales the olive oil is no big deal in this recipe

    1. Omg yes! My mother in law uses at least 10 blocks of lard when she makes tamales. 3 cups of olive oil is nothing when compared to how much lard is in traditional tamales.

  6. i just made these!!! omg sooooo bomb!!!! my very first time ever making tamales. they came out so flavorful. im super proud! and you are completely right cant tell the difference at all!

  7. Neto ya hice los tamales hoy y me salieron riquísimos!! Los hice de choritxo vegano con papas y zanahorias y de masa. Lo mejor que es la primera vez que los hago vegano 😄😄.
    Gracias!!! 💃💃💃

  8. So awesome to see a fellow MEXICANO cooking vegan.. gives me hope 😄
    I have my tamales in their steam bath.. I’ll let you know how they turned out🙏🏼

    1. Jenn Tx512
      Yes!! They were awesome! My father who is Very picky about my vagan cooking and hesitates to eat anything I make vegan actually Loved them and said it looked and tasted like the real deal! 🙏🏼👍🏻
      I thought it was very simple to put together.. only thing I had a bit of trouble was the steam time.. but after a burnt batch I figured it out😬

  9. Wow! que deliciosos y con las ganas que tengo de comer tamales vegetarianos pero no dijeron cuanto tiempo lo dejaron cociendo.

    Por favor digan cuanto tiempo los dejaron en la lumbre.

    1. Todo esta escrito abajo.. Tambien depende cuantos hagas.. Nosotros los cocinamos como por 2 horas. 😍😬 hasta que este suavecitos
