Tamales en Hoja de Platano


Tamales en Hoja de Platano


2oz Chicken Base
12 Banana Leaves “Hojas de Platano”
2 cooked chicken breast shredded
4 garlic cloves
3lb of corn dough for Tamales
2lb of chopped Tomatillo
3 chopped jalapenos
½oz of salt


Blend tomatillo, jalapenos, garlic, chicken base, pepper and salt.
Add sauce to shredded chicken breast and mix.

Preparing the Tamales:

Place banana leaves on stove and sear for 3-5 minutes. Let leaves cool.

We will now begin spreading the masa “dough” throughout banana leaves.

Make sure you are spreading masa enough to cover the center of the banana leaves.

Now we will be placing our prepared chicken breast on top of the masa.

Fold the banana leaves and place tamales in large steamer pot for 1 hour.

Make sure tamales are not in water at the bottom and add water to steamer as needed.

To check if the Tamales are ready, make sure the masa is thoroughly cooked.

*Remember to remove banana leaves before eating!

Al provecho!
