  • I used to work in a Mexican restaraunt and we made an assembly line. I love the pork ones, and green chile ones too!

  • I really like tmales, even though I am not hispanic I grew up with them because of living in the southwest for so long. Tamales are very popular there. I don't like the ones with lard, though. I don't like the taste, but I have a friend that makes them with vegetable shortening and they are amazing!

  • Tamales are very popular in our house.. I made about seven dozen mild pork tamales, about four dozen hot pork tamales and about four dozen chicken tamales on Sunday. I put three dozen mild tamales in the freezer that I will steam Christmas morning and we'll have those for Christmas dinner along with the other food we have on the menu.
