A tamale is a traditional Mesoamerican dish made of masa (a starchy dough, usually corn-based), which is steamed or boiled in a leaf wrapper. The wrapping is discarded before eating. Tamales can be filled with meats, cheeses, fruits, vegetables, chilies or any preparation according to taste.

Mexican-style, Central America-style and South American-style tamales are featured at ethnic restaurants throughout California and the United States. There are also some distinctly indigenous styles. Tamales have been traced back to the Ancient Maya people, who prepared them for feasts. Maya people called their corn tortillas and tamales both Utah.
