I found non-hydrogenated but it was made with soybean oil. I'm allergic to soy. So I'll stick with the bacon grease.
Thanks. I like to use things I already own.

I made these and they were WONDERFUL!!! Used 1/2 Hominy and 1/2 Baby corn as I watch my calories too. A little less of the pork filling. I got 80 calories per tamale, I think mine were a little smaller. Works great for me!

Thank you for sharing the recipe Vanessa!!

And thank you everyone else for sharing your tweaks!

Tamale Pie Brandon
Mock “Cornbread”
1 cup Almond Flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
4 TBSP. xylitol or Sugar Alternative
4 eggs
4-8 TBSP. Almond or Coconut Milk
1/2 cup Organic Sour Cream
4 TBSP. Melted Butter optional
A pinch of Turmeric for color optional
In a bowl, prepare the “Mock CornBread” batter. You might need to add an extra egg and another 1/4 cup of milk to make the batter a bit thinner, for pouring consistency. Stir in salt and chili powder and set aside. Mix the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, salt and xylitol together in a medium bowl. Add the sour cream, eggs, and melted butter. Mix well until a runny batter forms.
Tamale Pie
1 lb. grass-fed ground beef
2 TBSP. coconut oil
2 medium onions, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 TBSP. chili powder
2 cups chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 cup chopped black or green olives (or both)
2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 cup raw cheddar cheese, shredded
Over medium heat on the stove, heat the coconut oil. Cook the ground beef until no longer pink. Add the onion and garlic, and cook until golden and fragrant. Stir in the salt, chili powder, tomatoes and tomato sauce, stirring well to incorporate all ingredients. Add olives and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. In a greased 2 quart baking dish, pour 1/2 of the mock cornbread batter on the bottom of the dish. Pour the beef mixture on top, layering the top with the other 1/2 of the mock cornbread. Bake casserole in a 325 degree preheated oven for 1 hour. Sprinkle shredded cheese on top and bake for another 15-20 minutes, or until melted. Turn off oven, crack open the door and let sit for another 5-10 minutes and serve.
Paleo Tamales Paleo Cupboard
1 package dried corn husks
Hot sauce (for serving, optional)
Salsa (for serving, optional)
Guacamole (for serving, optional)
Filling
2 pound chuck roast
2 Tbsp. coconut oil
2 cups beef broth
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 green chilies, roasted with skin and seeds removed, diced finely
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. chili powder
Dash red pepper flakes (optional)
Dough
4 cups almond flour
1 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. arrowroot powder
4 tbsp. cold bacon fat
1/4 cup beef or chicken broth
Soak 8 corn husks in a bowl of very warm water. Saute the beef in a large skillet with coconut oil, making sure to brown all sides. Place beef and remaining ingredients in a slow cooker. Cook on low for about 6 hours, until beef is tender and shreds easily. When beef is done, remove from pot and save the liquid. Allow the beef to cool slightly before shredding with a fork. Add the beef to a bowl and pour just enough of the saved liquid (about 1/2 cup) to make the beef nice and moist but not soggy. Add all of the dough ingredients to a medium sized mixing bowl and combine with a fork, making sure to break apart any clumps. Set the dough aside for about 10 minutes.
Place about 1/2 cup of dough in the center of a corn husk and spread around to form a square about 1/2 inch thick. Place about 2 Tbsp. of filling in the center of the dough and gently fold the top and bottoms of the dough around the filling. Fold the sides of the corn husk inward towards the center and then fold the top and bottom inward to form a rectangular shape. Fill a large pot with a few inches of water and place over medium high heat. Add a steamer basket to the pot (pour out some of the water if the water level is higher than the steamer basket bottom). Add the tamales to the steamer basket. Once the water starts to steam, cover the pot and turn the heat to low. Steam the tamales for 1 hour. Take the tamales out of the pot and allow to sit for about 5 minutes Unwrap the tamales and serve with salsa, guacamole, and/or your favorite hot sauce.

Great recipe that was posted for a lower carb tamale dough.

If you'll add 1 tsp baking powder to the dough, you'll get a "rise/fluff" when they steam and the results will give you more dough per tamale for the same carb count.

Same would apply to a reg. tamle dough, adding baking powder gives a rise and you don't need to use as much dough per tamale if you're concerned w/ carbs or
blood glucose #'s.

I made this tamale dough for tamale pie and it was sensational, and tasted like the real thing. Thanks for the tip of adding baking powder, I meant to do it but forgot.
