    Thank you for this recipe. I'm curious about what the original recipe looked like. Would that have been something like: white ash from the fire, cornmeal, and cooked beans (what kind of beans?)?
    Do you know how you're people would have prepared this dish hundreds of years ago? (Prior to European contact with the Americas.)

    It is also commonly boiled instead of steamed.

    I wonder if the Cherokee Nation processed the corn the same way my people in central Mexico did, boiling the corn first in lime, rinsing well to remove the lime(avoid a bad taste)and then made the bread, whether in tortilla(tlashcala/bread)form or in tamal form. In Michoacán, the purépecha people made corundas wrapped in corn leaves, the shape taken when formed would be triangular, but my ancestors only put masa, no beans, meat or condiments in the corundas and now eatened accompanying a good, hearty churipo(beef soup/broth). To date I've been eating tlacoyos, which are similar to tamales, but cooked on a comal(metal or clay pan)set on a stovetop burner and filled with beans and red chili powder to taste. Tlaskamati for sharing and greetings from Querétaro! 🙂

    Here is a similar recipe from South India: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=nWLlNwFr9bA
    Very similar to Bean Bread preparation except this recipe from India is made from Jackfruits, and wrapped in Banana leaves instead of Corn leaves. Amazing how far North America and South Asia are yet some of the culinary practices transcend world distances.
    Please take a look you will be astonished by the similarity.

    That looks like tamales de frijol (bean tamales), but with the beans mixed up in the masa. You said that you were mixing the Cherokee bean bread with tamales, so that's fair, but I see nothing that makes me think that it is different fromt amales, so how would a traditional bean bread be? Cause I've been eating bean tamales all my life (they are tasty, as I am sure this recipe is) and they seem like they have the same flavor profile (i.e. are the same)
