Grandma Salazar's Famous Tamales Recipe

I had been looking for a homemade Tamales for years. There are frozen ones at the stores which is not as good as the homemade, they are  commercially made and not worth the money. Anyway, I finally got me some homemade tamales that is a bit spicy but really tastes good. My son loves it. I still have some in the fridge and will fry some later. The pork can be substituted with either chicken or beef (with or without cheese). You can choose between green and red chili sauce. Here is Grandma Salazar's Tamales recipe.
