Green Corn Tamales are a variation of the traditional Tamales dish, a staple of the Latin American kitchen. They are especially popular in Mexico, where the dish originated, and are also served in many other countries in the region. Tamales are also very popular in Los Angeles, mainly due to the influence of the Mexican culture in this city. Like all tamales, green corn tamales feature a corn-based filling cooked inside a corn husk wrapper. In the case of green corn tamales, however, the corn filling is not made up of the traditional dried ground corn masa dough. Instead, fresh corn is used to prepare a filling which can also include cheese, green chiles, or other ingredients. Today, this dish is served in many Mexican restaurants throughout Los Angeles, it being quite affordable and not very messy.
