2 Cups Flour
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1 1/2 Stellas (or beers of choice)
2 teaspoons Sea Salt
Your Spices of choice!
i.e. Old Bay, Chili Powder, Garlic Powder, Black Pepper, White Pepper, Nutmeg, Lawrys, Mrs. Dash's or whatever you have on hand.
Mix dry ingredients together, then add beer. Drink the rest of the beer, then drink another beer, letting batter set for 15 minutes. Coat any and all veggies, tofu or whatever you desire.
Fry in 375 Degree Oil until golden. Sprinkle with Sea Salt and serve immediately with dipping sauces of choice.
1 can tomato paste
1 red hot chili (dried or fresh with stem removed)
2 cups water
2 cloves fresh garlic
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Combine all in your high speed blender and then warm in a sauce pan for serving. Be sure to cover your blender with a towel and keep your hand on the top to avoid a tomato explosion in your kitchen. Trust me on this one. Serve immediately with your tamale cake and store any unused portion in refrigerator in a tightly sealed glass vessel for up to one week. ENJOY.
