Said of a traditional Chilean food similar to Mexican Tamales. Consist of a corn flour paste filled in with sauce an meat. Humitas vary from traditional tamales because they can also contain egg.
The word is believed to come from Huevo-tamales, but chileans have cut the pronunciation to Hue-males, later to Humales finally Humitas.
OMG, I had delicious humitas for dinner!!
¡Que ricas humitas hue'on!
