For many Latinos, tamales represent more than just a dish served during the holidays. For some, it might symbolize memories of spending hours pulling masa with family or eating tamales weeks after Navidad. They are beloved in Mexico and beyond, and with good reason. They are soft, warm, tasty, delicious treats, and good for almost any occasion, special or otherwise. Not to mention that you are porbably eating one today for lunch and nother for dinner because there are so many left over from your holiday celebrations.

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. 🤤

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.”
