The Tamale Apocalypse is upon us

Right after church I picked up our first dozen of home made tamales of the season, still hot from the tamale lady’s kitchen.
The tamale I enjoyed for breakfast was spicy chicken and superb!

Oh how I miss tamales! No good ones in Louisiana :sob: hoping to load up on my favorite tamales, kolaches, and Klobásník next week on our trip to central Texas!

I love tamales, but they don’t love me back! They incite a revolt…the response ain’t pretty.

I can’t say I miss them here in NM cause I eat red chili pork tamales all the time, and the HOTTER the BETTER! While everyone as babies were sucking on pacifiers, MY pacifier was a JALAPENO! :hot_face: I eat chili almost every day with just about anything I eat, and people tell me I must have an IRON stomach. :rofl:

We’re having duck tamales Christmas Eve, courtesy of Santa Fe School of Cooking. If you’ve never had them, pick some up!

@Alces_Americanus Now that sounds DEILICIOUS. Do they host any cooking classes, or is there any SF restaurants that may serve these tamales? Just wondering. There was one small restaurant that had duck on their menu, but can’t remember the name of it, just have to see if they’re still around. So many great restaurants in SF for GREAT EATS! :yum:

Santa Fe School of Cooking… School of Cooking… you know, they just might have cooking classes. :wink:

Seriously, yes they do, and every one I’ve been to has been educational, fun, and delicious! (I never, ever buy flour tortillas anymore. It’s faster and tastier to just make my own fresh.)

Tamales are a hit and miss proposition, so know your dealer. Life’s too short for bad tamales.

Just get twice the normal amount of good tamales to make up for the bad batch. Always outweigh evil, good must, young Padawan!

Probably most here are too young to remember the New Orleans tamale push carts. Still old style NOLA tamales can be found. I load up whenever I get in the area. http://www.oldstylehottamales.net/

I’m sorry that is not how New Orleans is pronounced. New Awlins is the preferred pronunciation. :innocent::rofl::joy:

:grin::grin: How it is pronounced and how it is written do not always agree! Beside some of our northern friends (commonly referred to as yankees) might have trouble with your spelling!:rofl::rofl::rofl:
