Spinach and Mushroom Tamale Filling

30 mins (prep 15, cooking 15)
14 ingredients
12-16 servings
For years I'd tried to find a spinach tamale filling similar to one I've tasted in restaurants, to no avail. Finally, I decided to make my own and this recipe has proved every bit as delicious as what I tasted in restaurants - this filling is so very good! Use your favorite prepared masa to make it into tamales, or mix your own. (Time does not include making the filling into tamales.)
