*** Mix the following together raw:
Ground meat, onions, garlic, salt, chili powder, cold water, 1/2 cup masa harina (add to taste), tomato sauce, cayenne (add to taste). Set aside in refrigerator, overnight preferably.
Take a tsp of meat mixture and roll in corn meal mixture, then put into wet tamale papers, roll and fold under the ends. Stack the folded tamales on a steam rack placed above the following mixture.
Add water so that liquid mixture will more than cover the steam rack. Cover pot and let sauce mixture come to a boil. Lower flame to where it produces steam and cook 1 hour and 30 minutes. Remove and let cool. Place in ziploc bags with left over sauce mixture and freeze.
