We’re only about a week from September and you know what that means… pumpkin flavored everything! From coffee to doughnuts to even pumpkin raviolis ’tis the season for pumpkin-EVERYTHING. IMUSA, leader in Hispanic cookware, is even jumping on the trend with their recipe for “Pumpkin-Pie” Tamales. This recipe takes the traditional Mexican Masa tamales and adds all the fall season’s favorite ingredients like ginger, nutmeg, raisins and pumpkin (of course), leaving this sweet side dish a sure favorite with anyone who gets their hands on one.
Now I must admit – I jump pretty firmly on the “pumpkin” bandwagon as well – in fact I am always happy to find a restaurant serving pumpkin pie in the Spring! But never would I have thought to make TAMALES with pumpkin. But this I gotta try.
