Step 2: Make sure you have enough meat!

Step 3: Lots of strong hands to mix up the maza...
Step 4: Vegetarians pitching in to make pork tamales....priceless!

Step 5: Cookiandolos in 2 1/2 hours and they're ready to eat!
The best part of this process was that fact that I didn't have to do much besides....Relax Strong! How about you? How did you "relax strong" over the holidays????
