About our Tamale Recipe
I grew up on a ranch in West Texas.
There was a Hispanic family that lived and worked on the Ranch. The mother
was a lady named Goya, and she cooked like you could not believe.
Since that time, I have traveled all over the world, and have eaten in the
World's finest five star restaurants, but I can honestly say that I have never
had food that came close to the stuff that came out of Goya's tiny little
kitchen in the small little cinder block house on a remote ranch in West Texas.
Goya died in 1998, but luckily she shared her recipe with me, and taught me how
to make tamales. This site is
dedicated to Goya's memory, and her most delicious Tamales. As time goes on, I plan
to add more of Goya's Mexican Food recipes to this site.
