¡A Comer Tamales!

Tamale comes from the Nahuatl word "tamal" in the Aztec's primary language. We can trace its origins all the way back to 7,000 B.C. in the Aztec empire. However, tamales are not only Mexican as many Latin nations also enjoy them. The Mayans called them "uah", the Venezuelans "hallaquitas", and "humitas" by those living south of Equator. A tamale is a corn-based dough wrapped in a corn shuck stuffed with meat or sweet corn. Here is a roundup of their history & how they eat them in Latin America.
