Anybody have a good(proven) recipe. I love em, and want to give it a try but don't want to waste my time on a random internet recipe.

My ol' lady has made venison hot tamales before from scratch. I'll ask her about the recipe. If I recall correctly, they were labor intensive. -not difficult, but a good bit of work.

Open this and you will find all you need to know:

I suggest that you make a pilgrimage to Claksdale and find Hick's.
Best I've ever had.

I asked and she said just to find a traditional recipe. You'll have to soak the corn husks etc. if you want to use venison, look up a recipe for Venison Machaca, in which you will slow cook roast meat. No shortcuts in this dish, but it's good as heck!

Thanks Hawk, the story and recipe on that site is exactly what I have been looking for. My first tamales were from a place called Doe's in Lake Village Arkansas. They have the look exactly like the ones on the "how to" section of that site down to cooking them in coffee cans.

My Mother N Law grew up in Lake Village AR across the River from Greenville, MS. I want to make her some for Christmas.
