Colombian Breakfast of Champions
Cadence has a brainstorm idea to sell tamales at the Farmers Market, which begins in May, so she decided to do a test run today.
Unfortunately, the market did not have any corn husks, but it did have banana leaves, so she made Colombian-style tamales. In Colombia, tamales are eaten for breakfast, and are considered the "Breakfast of Champions."
She piled the banana with chicken breast, pork , potatoes, corn paste and tomatoes cooked with scallions, garlic and cilantro.
Then she folded up the banana leaf and tied with twine or wrapped in foil.
The tamales are steamed until the chicken is cooked. I can't wait to eat these for breakfast tomorrow!
