Forget about those ten acrobatic lords, eight lactating maids or that pheasant in the fruit tree.
It’s time for the 12 Days of Tamales!
For millions of Texans (us included), tamales are a huge part of the holiday season. But making them from scratch can take an entire day and cause more family drama than the time we brought home a boyfriend 35 years older than us.
So best to leave the tamale making to the experts. And Urban Taco is going to blow your mind with a dozen rotating daily selections, available for lunch, dinner or by the dozen.
It all starts next week, so plan your tamale parties accordingly.
