Times

  • Prep Time : 45 min
  • Cook Time : 1 hour
  • Ready Time : 1 hour, 45 min

Servings

12

Ingredients

  • 12 large dried corn husks, soaked in warm water to soften
  • 2 cups masa harina
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 cups mango nectar
  • 2 large ripe mangos, peeled, pitted, and chopped (makes approximately 2 ½ cups. Use 2 tablespoons for tamales and reserve 2 cups for Mango Topping)
  • Lime wedges

For Mango Topping:

  • 1/4 cup orange liqueur or orange juice
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 pinch or dash cinnamon
  • 2 cups remaining mango

Directions

Remove husks from water and pat dry. In a medium bowl beat together masa, butter, brown sugar, baking powder and cinnamon until fluffy. Beat in nectar until smooth. Spread equal amounts of mixture in the center of each corn husk; top with 2 tablespoons chopped mango. Bring in the sides of the corn husks so that the edges of the masa meet, then fold in both ends to enclose filling. Steam for 1 hour, then let cool slightly. Mango Topping: Combine ¼ cup orange liqueur or orange juice, ¼ cup brown sugar, 1 tablespoon butter and dash cinnamon in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring frequently. Stir in 2 cups chopped ripe mango (about 2 mangos) and cook for a few minutes more. Serve warm sauce over warm tamales with lime wedges on the side.
