Naca Tamales of Nicaragua

The tamales of Nicaragua are more of a meal than just masa. Inside each banana-leaf-wrapped tamale you’ll find tender chunks of pork, potatoes, rice, onions, olives, and prunes. Typically served from Christmas Eve through New Year’s Day. To learn how to prepare this traditional dish, wear closed-toe shoes and bring an apron, chef’s knife, and a bag to carry your tamales home.
