Espelón bread is a characteristic tamale from Valladolid known for its unmatched filling of pork loin, a traditional dish of the region. This tamale is called "Espelón Bread" by the people of Valladolid. It is made with masa (dough), espelón, boiled eggs, and pork loin. First, the hoja santa or mak'ulan leaf is cleaned, and then the masa is mixed with espelón, lard, and salt to taste. The masa is then spread and filled with pork loin, which is prepared the day before. Boiled eggs cut into slices are added as well. Finally, it is cooked in a pib (an underground oven) for approximately two hours. After this process, you can enjoy its crispy texture and flavorful filling. It can be served with tomato sauce and habanero chilli.
