Let's Make It
Beat first 4 ingredients in large bowl with mixer on low speed until blended. Gradually add broth, beating well after each addition until light and fluffy. Stir in cheese.
Blend juice, barbecue sauce and annatto paste in blender until smooth. Add to meat; mix lightly.
Spoon about 1/3 cup dough onto center of each of 14 banana leaves; spread into 5x3-inch rectangle. Top each with 1/4 cup meat mixture. Fold in sides of leaves to completely enclose filling. Tie closed with strips of additional leaves.
Pour 3 cups water into tamalera pot or 8-qt. stockpot fitted with steamer basket. Line bottom of basket with leaves; add tamales, overlapping as necessary to fit. Cover tamales with remaining leaves or damp kitchen towel. Cover with tight-fitting lid. Bring to boil on medium-high heat. Cook on medium-low heat 1 hour or until tamales pull away from leaves, adding more boiling water to pot as necessary.
Bring remaining 2 cups water to boil in medium saucepan. Add onions; cook 5 min. Drain. Transfer onions to bowl; toss with dressing. Serve over tamales.

Serve topped with a dollop of BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream.
If you don't have a tamalera, stack tamales, slightly overlapping, in steamer basket inside large (8 qt.) stockpot filled with 3 cups water. Make sure tamales are not touching the water. Cook as directed. To avoid burning bottom of tamalera or pot, add several coins to the water. Coins will rattle throughout the cooking time. If rattling stops, add more water to the pot.
