Ramekin chicken & corn tamales with roasted poblano sauce

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
24.00 \N fresh corn husks or dried husks
1.00 cup diced cooked chicken
¾ cup roasted corn kernels
½ cup diced onion
1.00 cup chicken stock
⅓ cup lard
¾ cup cornmeal
1 \N salt; to taste
1 \N freshly-ground black pepper; to taste
1 \N southwest spice; see * note
1 \N roasted poblano sauce; see * note
2.00 tablespoon finely-diced red bell pepper; for garnish
2.00 tablespoon finely-chopped green onion; for garnish

* Note: See the “Southwest Spice - {Emeril’s Southwest Seasoning}” and “Roasted Poblano Sauce” recipes which are included in this collection.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. If using dried corn husks, soak in hot water until softened, about 30 minutes. Lightly oil 12 medium ramekins, about 2-inches deep. Line each ramekin with 2 corn husks, leaving ends sticking out. In a large bowl beat together chicken, corn, onion, chicken stock, lard and cornmeal to make a loose smooth dough; season to taste with salt, pepper and Southwest Spice. Spoon dough into ramekins, filling each one to top of dish, and fold leaves over to enclose tops. Place ramekins in a large roasting pan, transfer to oven rack, and carefully pour in enough boiling water to reach halfway up sides of ramekins. Bake tamales, adding a little more water to pan if necessary, 1 hour or until they are cooked through. To serve, ladle Roasted Poblano Sauce onto plates. Remove ramekins from pan and then lift tamales out and onto plate. Drizzle with a little remaining sauce and garnish with red pepper and green onion. This recipe yields 6 first-course servings.
