Northern Style Bean Tamales Recipe

A mexican recipe of corn husk filled with masa and chilli beans. Northern Style Bean Tamales are perfect for vegetarians, vegans, and meat-eaters alike. Delicious, savory, and so yummy. It’s kinda hard to find masa without lard. You can use organic shortening suitable for vegans. If you buy the masa already prepared from the store, chances are it will not be vegan. Can be served with ancho beans or serve them with chips as a dip. So yummy.
