  • Prep: 30 mins
  • Cook: 1 hr 30 mins


1/2 kg of corn masa for tortillas

1/2 cup of lard

2 tablespoons baking powder

1 pinch of salt

3 cups chicken broth

2 cooked and shredded chicken breasts

100 g of black mole paste

3 banana leaves


1Dissolve the mole in 1 1/2 cups chicken broth, cook while stirring until it boils and thicken slightly.

2Incorporate the chicken, move to integrate it and remove from the stove; reservation.

3Beat the butter with a wooden shovel and when it creases, incorporate the dough and beat to integrate it.

4Add the baking powder, the salt and gradually the remaining broth (try not to "loosen" the dough) and knead constantly; form a ball, throw it in a glass with water, if it floats is ready.

5Roast the banana leaves on both sides to handle them and cut them into 10 x 10 cm squares.

6Spread 1 tablespoon of dough on a piece of leaf, put a little mole with chicken, wrap the tamale and tie with a strip of the same sheet. Repeat until ingredients are finished.

7Arrange the tamales in the steamer, put the lid and cook for 1:30 hours, or until cooked.
