This is one of those recipes that is time intensive, but so cheap and so good that it’s well worth the effort. The entire recipe is about $3.25, including the cost of cooking it.

Tamales and Tomatoes

Ingredients:

1 can Bush’s Pinto Beans (If you’re in the U.K., Australia or virtually any British former protectorate, you can still make this recipe: just double the amount to two cans, and look for gluten-free Heinz Beans.)

1 can Bush’s Hominy (No, they’re not paying me.  They’re just cheap, and easy to get in the U.S.  =0)

1 3/4 cup Maseca Masa

3/4 cup vegetable oil (I used generic safflower/soy oil.)

1 1/2 cups water

1/2 tsp salt (You can add spices. Garlic salt is an easy add-on. Check that it’s gluten-free.)

Enough water to fill the cooking vessel of your rice cooker.

Kitchen Apparatus:
