How to Make Abuelita’s Tamales from Pixar’s ‘Coco’

In the latest episode of “Binging with Babish,” a cooking series where home chef Andrew Rea recreates famous foods from films and TV shows, Andrew prepares a real life version of Elena Rivera’s traditional tamales from Pixar’s 2017 animated adventure film, Coco.

“Pixar’s latest laser-guided annihilator of heartstrings, Coco, starts off in the Mexican town of Santa Cecilia, where 12-year-old Miguel’s abuelita does two things very well: staving off music of any kind, and slinging tamales. These little packets of south-of-the-border love can be tricky and time-consuming, but make for the perfect Oscar party snack next week when we watch Coco inevitably lose the trophy to Boss Baby.”
