If Your Abuela Saw This Tamal Recipe, She Would Also React Like This

If there’s one thing the holiday season wouldn’t be the same without, it’s the food, and that includes delicious homemade tamales. đŸ€€

However, not all tamales are the same and if you’re not careful about following your family’s recipe, you might end up with an unusual tamal like the one below.

Meet Kalen. If you’re not familiar with him, he’s known for his hilarious critiques of cooking videos.

In this episode, Kalen goes on to critique a video of someone making tamales.

As soon as Kalen sees the corn husks, he knows this video is headed in the right direction and he approves.

In the next step of the recipe, Kalen sees a ton of Oreo filling being removed from the cookies. This is when the video starts to get a bit confusing.

Even though Kalen is a bit confused, he assumes that in addition to the tamales, this video will also be showing you how to make some type of Oreo cookie dessert.

Next, there’s a bowl of sweet potatoes being mixed together and this is when Kalen starts to question: What happened to the original tamales recipe?

The video goes from corn husks, to Oreos, and then to sweet potatoes. At this point Kalen has no idea what this recipe is supposed to be.

Once the video shows the bag of masa used to prepare tamales, Kalen is relieved to see that the recipe is getting back on track.

Maybe the segment of the Oreos and the sweet potatoes was just an error, right?

But then he see’s the Oreo crumbs being mixed into the dough, and he loses it.

At this point, my abuela would’ve kicked me out the kitchen.

His final expression: Shooketh.

Kalen’s final response is: “This was the Day of the Dead recipe? If I was dead I’d keep my ass in the ground.”

21 Latino Tweets and Jokes of the Week

Twitter is taking the internet by storm. The social media website has become one of the top places for keeping up with all things celebrity, politics, and memes, and it offers the perfect opportunity to connect and relate with other Latinos over comedy. There is an endless amount of humorous content constantly being posted on Twitter, which is why we’ve come up with this list of this week’s top relatable Latino tweets to keep you laughing through the week.

1.  If this isn’t your goal, you’re lying to yourself.

Adulting is hard and I want my mom’s cooking back.

2.  Love the smell, hate the taste.

I have student loans to pay off and rent to pay, so I can’t afford to find myself a Mexican mom who can make my apartment smell like Mexican food. Do they make menudo-scented candles? If not, someone should get on that,

3. A message to lurkers.

We all need a reminder to drink to our haters every once in a while – they’re just jealous, honey. I think we’re all a little guilty of jealous lurking at some point though. Let’s all try to spread love to each other instead.

4. We all know this type.

Yep, anyone with Chucks and a piercing is definitely a “rocker”.

5.  Uber offers the perfect opportunity to take on a new identity.

Let’s be real though, we’re all cosplaying as something, be it a straight boy, Wonderwoman, or someone who actually has their shit together.

6. If your mother doesn’t nag at you when you come home, something’s wrong.

“You didn’t shave your beard? Pluck your eyebrows. I thought you were losing weight. When did you last take a shower? Have you been eating?” When she picks at your appearance, that’s how you know she loves you.

7. Lady Gaga’s level of Catholicism is every abuela’s wet dream.

Sorry, abuela. I’m too hungover to go to mass this morning.

8. No matter how many times I say no, I still want to be invited.

You know that feeling when you see your friends going out on social media and you’re mad that they didn’t invite you but you said no the last 16 times? Yeah, me too. I’m just going to sit here and watch reruns of The Office for the 23rd time now and hope that I’ll be invited next time.

9.  When you’re too fabulous to be on time.

Your boss can’t blame you for being late. Your habitual lateness has been passed down through several generations of strong, independent women who won’t let time define them. And you needed a coffee.

10. When you finally look good in a photo but you don’t want your dad’s 8th cousin’s brother to be in the picture.

I don’t blame her. It’s hard to look good in photos unless it’s your 500th selfie taken in an hour. When you finally get a good one, you have to share it – but first, you need to crop out that unidentifiable relative who you haven’t seen in 6 years.

11. We are all this dog.

I’m going places, I swear. I just need to finish every show on Netflix and eat everything in sight.

12. She’s not wrong.

You’re still special, girl. Don’t let Becky’s Juvederm make you think you aren’t great. (And your lips will never deflate.)

13. For real though.

Did you think the bible was completed all this time? Oh, no, no, no. After thousands of years of just near perfection, the New Testament was completed on November 10, 2014, with the release of Taylor Swift’s Blank Space. The world has never been the same since.

14. Have you ever tried to host Thanksgiving? Don’t.

You don’t know stress and anxiety until you try to cook a decent meal for 25 Latinos. You just don’t. And if you have, you deserve official sainthood.

15. If your mom is your #1 girl, you’re lucky.

Nothing beats the unconditional love of a Latina mother or any mother for that matter. Friends come and go, and some might stay, but your mom has been there since the beginning.  Her love and support will never go away (even if it’s tough love).

16. You know the feeling.

We just barely made it through Thanksgiving, but we’re going to need a lot more tequila to get through the rest of the holiday season.

17. Nothing beats authentic Mexican food.

We’re not talking about that overpriced hipster stuff that costs $15 for 3 bites of food. One $10 order of the real deal can feed a family of nine for weeks.

18. The nerve of some people.

No, I did not authorize this purchase of $277 at Sephora. This eyeliner is all natural. How dare my bank take my money? I’m just trying to look good.

19. I think we all can relate to this.

You get out of the shower, dry off, and make the mistake of sitting in bed with just your towel on. And it’s so, so comfortable. You take out your phone to check Twitter and suddenly you’re watching a full-on documentary on YouTube. An hour has now passed and you’re late and your hair is still wet, and out go your hopes and dreams of ever being a functioning member of society.

20. Going through 6 days of torture, all for nothing.

That size chart looked enticing, but you decided to just wing it and hope you’re still the size you were last summer. Big mistake.

21. And that was the moment they realized they made a mistake.

People love to talk as much shit in Spanish all they want, but as soon as they realize people can understand them, they’re surprised. Be careful what you say – you never know who’s listening.
