Sweet Tamales With Yams and Pecans

135 mins (prep 60, cooking 75)
16 ingredients
15-20 servings
Sensational side dish. It takes a bit of work, but the effect will have your dinner guests talking! A slightly sweet little bundle topped with a smoky chipotle-sour cream sauce. I used a 1/4 cup cookie scoop to measure out the mixture for each tamale and got 16. From Nob Hill Foods website featuring recipes for Thanksgiving. I might try increasing the sugar and decreasing the masa and see if it will still stay together in a "tamale".
