Bloody Maria Red Chile Tamales
Tamales are a treasured tradition here in NM, and one that we are by no means expert.. However, we know that Bloody Maria makes everything better! The pork or chicken filling can be made ahead of time in a Crockpot, this is where we add the good stuff. Pour a good amount of Bloody Maria in with additional spices and broth - this will tenderize and add depth of flavor to your Tamale mix.

The assembly party is often called a Tamalada, a family tradition demonstrated in the below video from Muy Bueno Cookbook. https://muybuenocookbook.com/how-to-make-tamales-tamalada-video/
