Fresh corn is puréed with Mexican corn flour and vegetable broth as black beans and corn kernels are seasoned with red onion and chili powder. Wrapping these tamales in their corn husk package is a great party activity and almost as much fun as chowing down on these black bean beauties. This recipe comes to us from Lindsay of Cook. Vegan. Lover.

Tamales are a traditional Mexican dish of stuffed masa (corn dough) which is then steamed in a banana leaf. Try finding banana leaves in the frozen section of the grocery store or at specialty Latin markets; if you can’t find the leaves, use foil as a substitute. This recipe comes from Mexico: The Cookbook by Margarita Carrillo Arronte.

Slightly altered recipe from epicurious.com. I was inspired by cornmeal crepes I sampled in a restaurant last weekend. Surprisingly, at nine dollars for [] crepe, the filling left much to be desired and to top it all off, the crepe was burnt! As a result, I was on a mission to find a suitable cornmeal crepe recipe. If masa harina is not available, substitute cornmeal. Stuff the crepes with your favorite fillings-either savory or sweet!
No one is going to ask "Where's the beef?" when confronted with this chili. Slowly cooking the meat with lard, peppers, and spices creates a wonderfully complex sauce that's topped off with tender corn-flavored dumplings.
I found this recipe when searching for Grass Fed Beef Recipes. www.brooklynfarmhouse.com Here's some of their tips: The masa thickens the chili and adds an extra bit of savory depth of flavor. You can easily omit if you don’t happen to have masa on hand. (Don’t be tempted to use cornmeal. It won’t work.) You can vary the consistency to your taste by omitting the water or adding an extra bit of masa harina (to make it thicker). Add a little more water, or omit a tablespoon or two of masa if you like it a little soupier.
