Green Chile and Cheese Vegetarian Tamales

Green Chile and Cheese Vegetarian Tamales- A Mexican classic, these Green Chile and Cheese Vegetarian Tamales are filled with roasted poblano peppers and spicy pepper jack cheese. Also gluten free!




INGREDIENTS
FOR THE DOUGH
3 1/4 cups instant corn masa flour (I used MASECA)
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup vegetable oil (or other neutral-tasting oil, or lard if you're not vegetarian)
2 1/4 cups chicken broth (or vegetable broth to keep it vegetarian)
FOR THE FILLING
12 ounces spicy Pepper Jack cheese (or Asadero or Monterey Jack)
5 large poblano peppers (or about 10 jalapeno peppers)
1/2 packet corn husks

INSTRUCTIONS
PREPARE THE CORN HUSKS
Place the corn husks in a large bowl and fill with hot water. Place a heavy mug or something on top of the corn husks to help them stay submerged. Set aside for an hour to soften.
MAKE THE DOUGH
In a large bowl, add the instant corn masa flour (I used MASECA), salt and baking powder. Mix together with a fork.
Add in the oil and broth. Mix everything together using your hands until the mixture forms a wet dough. Cover the dough with kitchen towel and set aside to rest for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, make the filling.
