I normally do not like to reblog things too much, especially foods and recipes I have already made and created. However, there are always exceptions to everything. This is one of those exceptions. My husband switched jobs 4 years ago, and when he did, he started a new tradition. He brings in green chili and tamales for everyone he works with to celebrate his work anniversary. It seems to be a popular tradition. Every year, the pot of green chili gets bigger and bigger and it always comes home empty, so I guess they like my green chili. Time for Green Chili The tamales he buys, though I can easily make them. I love to make tamales, however, they are very time consuming to make, and I usually do not have the time to make them for everyone he works with. So a compromise is made. I make the green chili, the tamales he buys and everyone is happy.
