What is Maseca?
Maseca is a brand of instant corn masa, that is basically dried corn that is ground, cooked in slaked lime and water, then dried again.
What is slaked lime?
Slaked lime is another name for calcium hydroxide.
TAMALE STEAMER POT
1 to 1 1/2 lbs Dried Corn Husks
**Some corn husks will not be usable so its good to have extra
**separate and rinse husks well before soaking
**steep in boiled or hot water for at least an hour, overnight for best results
**corn husks should be pliable enough to fold
4.4 lbs Maseca (dried corn instant masa mix)
**corn meal or corn starch will not work as a substitute**
1 lb lard (melted)
5 to 5 1/2 quarts hot water (keep extra just in case masa gets too dry)
1 to 1 1/2 cup guajillo sauce puree (see below for recipe)
4 tsp salt (or season to taste)
1 tbls Chicken bouillon powder (optional)
**Mix until masa is fluffy and soft
4 to 5 dried guajillo chiles (clean and seeds removed)
1 small onion
2 to 3 cloves fresh garlic

***soak chiles in boiling water for 30 minutes or until pliable and soft
***blend all ingredients together until pureed
5 to 6 lbs of cooked meat of your choice or cooked mashed beans and cheese are great too.
