History of the Tamal
The history of the tamal dates back to the Aztecs before the arrival of the Spanish conquistadores. Tamale is derived from the word tamalii from the Nahuatl language spoken by the Aztecs. The word means “Wrapped Food”. In the 1550’s, the Aztecs served the Spaniards tamales during their visits to Mexico. Originally the Aztecs cooked the tamales by burying them in hot ashes which made them crispy and brown. When the conquistadores arrived in Mexico, the Aztecs had developed a new method for cooking tamales. They steamed the tamales in underground pits or in uncovered pots. Using this method, the Aztecs believed that the tamal stuck to the bottom of the pot was a good luck and would ward off danger on the battleground.
