Tamal or tamalli, in Nahuatl, is a beautiful bundle of corn masa filled with diverse ingredients that vary in both size and shape depending on the Mexican state or region.

In this class, students will make uchepuicha/ uchepos tamales from the state of Michoacán. These tamales are prepared during the elote season and are part of the state's celebration and festivals.

Let's learn how to make tamales with elote fresco (seasonal fresh corn.)
