Veracruz-Style Tamales (Zacahuil)
These delicious Mexican tamales are the perfect comfort food. Banana leaves stuffed with turkey, tomatoes, and ground chili peppers make for a savory authentic Mexican meal, straight from Veracruz. Serve with salsa if desired, and enjoy!
Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
