Recipe Directions

Place 5 cups of corn in the food processor with the pine nuts, cashews, jalapeno and salt and process just until smooth, but do not overprocess. Transfer to a bowl and fold in the remaining corn and cilantro. Adjust seasoning.

Prepare the spicy walnut taco meat and add the mushrooms.

Dry the corn husks with a towel. Tear a thin strip off the side of each husk to tie the top of the tamale together. Lay corn husk flat and place about 1/2 cup of the corn mixture onto the center of each. Place a few tablespoons of the mushroom mixture onto the corn mix. Fold the bottoms up over the filling and then fold the sides over. Using the husk strips, tie the tops of each tamale.

If you have a dehydrator, place the tamales inside for a couple of hours before serving, to warm them up.

For serving, place a tamale on a plate. Unwrap, pour Mole sauce over the mix and pile up the salsa.

No, its just for presentation...a cute little package. Traditionally, the corn husks are there to hold the filling while the tamales are steamed. But I just use them for looks and for fun. You could really do this without the husks, but then it wouldn't really be tamale-like! I get mine at the latino market near my house (there are tons, I'm in San Diego)

Do you think I could use something other than pine nuts and/or cashews? I'm running low on cashews and I haven't any pine nuts! Aagh! I have almonds, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds. I guess I probably need to make a store-run for more nuts! :D
