No plant leaf wrapping?

Nope. Cheater version, and rather tasty!

I'll try it out. I've had to cut tamales out of my diet because of the need to use pork fat to give the central corn mass the proper consistency. I can see how incorporating cheese and creamed corn acts as a suitable substitute.

It's quite tasty. It's not a wrapped tamale, but it's really quite good. It'd make a good tamale if you wanted to take it that way.

Variation: Add pimientos and asiago, ease up on the green chiles.
