Mexican Holiday Tamales Directory 


 

Tamales are a traditional Mexican dish passed down from generations dating back to the Aztecs and are a popular dish during Christmas and the holiday season. Making tamales is labor intensive and an act of love. Masa (corn meal) is the outer portion and is usually wrapped in a corn husk. The insides can be filled with chicken, pork, beef, and many other fillings. This holiday season try a steamed, hot, delicious tamale at any of the following North County Mexican restaurants.
