Guatemalan Red Tamales

Unlike the more familiar Mexican tamales, Guatemalan tamales are larger in size and are wrapped in banana leaves. Red tamales are often prepared during the Christmas and New Year holidays. They are time-consuming to prepare so gather your family and make the preparation a party. Or, divide the preparation into 2 days – make the filling and the masa on the first day. Prepare the banana leaves, assemble and cook the tamales on the second day.
