Doña Elvira is from a southern state called Chiapas. She is well known for her handmade tamales, which are traditional Mexican corn dumplings steamed in corn husks. To make the dough, Doña Elvira cooks and grinds corn herself (as opposed to buying prepared corn flour), and uses seeds from Chiapas to grow specialty herbs to flavor it. After slathering corn husks with her dough, she tucks in fresh meats, salsas or other fillings. Then, she rolls her tamales and steams them for over an hour. She learned this artisanal tamale-making process from her mother, and is proud to be able to offer her Nayarit clientele this authentic Chiapas treat.
