Tamales with Chili Sauce

Craving Mexican food again.  This time I'm going to make Tamales with Chili Sauce.  We'll start with the Tamale Doh!
Two cups of Masa for Tamales, Two cups of water, 2/3 cup of Bacon Fat, 1 teaspoon of Baking Powder, and 1 teaspoon of Sea Salt.  Then everyone into the mixer for a spin.
In the meantime I prepared some Beef Taco filling with off the shelf Taco Spices, and soaked the Corn Husks in cold water.  Spread some Tamale Doh! on each Corn Husk, and Add some Beef Taco Filling inside.
Roll the up so the Tamale Doh! covers the Beef Taco filling, and repeat until you have used up the Tamale Doh!
The Chili Sauce is Carroll Shelby's Chili Mix, a pound of ground Beef, a 14.5 oz. can of whole Tomatoes, a 8 oz. can of Tomato sauce, and 8 oz. of water.  That will simmer down for about an hour.
We'll finish rolling the Tamales, and get them ready to go into the steamer.
The Tamales will steam for an hour.
After the Tamales come out of the steamer they need to cool for a while to set the Tamale Doh!
Here is the final product.  Not as pretty as I would have liked, but tasty none the less...
