El Cholo: Update + Recipe

two tamales on a plateImage via Wikipedia

Just discovered one more item at El Cholo that appears to be without a eggs, meat, or fish base - the green corn tamales. The recipe for the tamales is listed here on the LA Times website, Perhaps they didn't mention it to me before because the cheese that they use is animal-rennet based? Or maybe they just didn't remember. The tamales seem relatively easy to make!

Hi 2nd Anonymous - Not quite sure what you mean here. The El Cholo recipe above does not have lard for sure.
