Making Tamales

Soaking the corn in lime, this breaks down the hard casing so they can mash it. I heard that they discouraged this step in Nicaragua for some reason and the people all ended up with vitamin deficiencies.  If it's not broke, don't fix it!
Chopping the chicken, for the filling

Everyone working together, it's a big job!!

Making Tamales- putting the masa(?) in the soaked corn husk
