Recipe Yield: Total time: 10 minutes | Makes enough for 4 to 5 dozen tamales
1 2/3 cups butter 6 tablespoons margarine 5 pounds unprepared fresh masa 1 to 3 cups pork, chicken, beef or vegetable stock 2 tablespoons salt

Step 1 In the bowl of a heavy-duty mixer, combine the butter and margarine. With the paddle attachment on high speed, whip for 2 minutes, or until fluffy. Lower the speed to medium and add the fresh masa alternately with 1 cup of the stock, then add the salt. Beat until well mixed.

Step 2 Return the mixer to high speed and whip for 3 to 5 minutes, until the masa is the consistency of spackle. If necessary, add more stock, one-fourth cup at a time, until the correct consistency is attained.

Step 3Drop one-half teaspoon masa into a cup of cold water. If the masa floats, it is ready; if it sinks, continue whipping it for another minute. Repeat this "float test" until the sample masa floats.
