total: 1 hr 20 min
total: 26 servings, 2 tamales each

What You Need

52  corn husks

Tamale Dough
1 tsp.  each ground cumin, turmeric, ground coriander
3 cups  chopped cooked chicken
3/4 cup  KRAFT Zesty Italian Dressing
1/4 cup   chopped cilantro

Make It

SOAK corn husks in hot water 30 minutes or let stand overnight in room-temperature water. Prepare Tamale Dough recipe, adding the cumin, turmeric and coriander with the flour.

ASSEMBLE tamales by spreading 2 Tbsp. of the masa mixture (tamale dough) into a 3×2-inch rectangle down the center of each corn husk, leaving about 2 inches bare at the top of the husk. Spoon 1 Tbsp. of the chicken over the masa in each husk. Combine dressing and cilantro; spoon 1 tsp. of the dressing mixture down the center of the masa mixture in each husk; fold over the sides of the husk and both ends to completely enclose the filling.

STAND tamales in a steamer basket in large pot filled 1/4 full with water. (Make sure tamales are not touching the water.) Bring water to boil; cover. Steam 1 hour or until tamales pull away from the corn husks, adding more water to the pot when necessary. Remove tamales from steamer basket; cool slightly. Top with BREAKSTONE’S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream just before serving, if desired.
