The Giant Guatemalan Tamal

Rudy Giron: Guatemalan tamales &emdash;

The gigantic tamal from oriente (Eastern Guatemala) is the equivalent of 4 to 6 typical tamales or about a dozen Mexican typical tamales. The plate that holds this tamal is 11 inches or 28 cms in diameter. The dough has been cooked only once as opposed to the typical Guatemalan tamales which are cooked twice. There is also over a pound of pork meat inside (tongue, ear, head, ribs, etc.).

Could you eat one these enourmous tamales all by yourself?
