2 cups chili powder
2 cups paprika

2 large onions, finely chopped

Filling: Mix all ingredients for the filling together. Roll into egg-shape balls.

Batter: Add enough very hot water (approximately 6 cups) until mixture will hold together and be pliable. Put mixture around each ball of meat filling. Wrap in tamale paper or prepared corn husks, and steam for 45 minutes.
