Recipe by Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit


  • 20 ears of fresh corn

  • 100 green corn husks

  • 200 g of sugar (a little less than one cup)

  • 500 g butter (about 4 sticks)

  • 2 tablespoons yeast

  • 1 tablespoon salt


  • Cut the corn off the cob, blend the grains, and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the sugar, butter, yeast, and salt. Combine the two mixtures to form a smooth paste.
  • Add two tablespoons of the paste to the corn husk and cover with another husk, folding the edges in to form the tamales.
  • Place in a steamer and cook for 75 minutes over medium heat.
