My friend dropped some homemade ones off for me. They are wrapped in corn husks. Am I supposed to discard the husks or lie to her about how good they were to eat whole?

I think they are not tortillas.<br />

They sound like tamales.<br />

They are usually wrapped in husks or banana leaves to preserve moisture. Once they are warm you discard them.

I'd give her a call and ask. Tell her you really want to enjoy them but have never had them before. It'll go over better than a lie. :)

Are they tortillas or tamales? I never saw tortillas wrapped in corn husks. If they are tamales, heat them up and discard the corn husks as you are eating each one.

TAMALES! That's it. Whew! I don't have to lie...tried eating one but couldn't swallow it :(

The authentic recipes use lard in the corn covering of tamales. I don't eat pork at all so it's either homemade or canned ones for me.

Sounds like a tamale. Tortillas are just flat corn cakes. Ever have them, let's see I live in El Paso, TX right on the mexican border. 95% of the people in this town are hispanic. 100% of the restaurants are mexican restaurants...Every grocery store in this town has row after row of mexican food...nope never heard of them.
