Yield: 4 Servings
1/2 c Milk
1 1/3 c Roasted fresh corn kernels
1 c Masa harina
14 tb Butter; softened
1 ts Baking powder
1/2 ts Salt
1/2 c Chiles poblanos; finely
1/2 c Jack cheese
8 Dried corn husks
Soak husks in hot water until pliable. In a saut pan simmer the milk
and corn together over medium heat until the corn becomes soft (about
10 minutes. Strain the corn, reserve 1 cup, and pure the remainder

Divide masa evenly between the corn husks, roll and tie tamales and
steam for 30 minutes. Let cool slightly and serve.
