Am I the only one who enjoys eating tamales during the holidays? Has anyone else on these forums even heard of tamales? In the places where I have lived (California and Texas), it is a holiday tradition in many Mexican-American households to bake tamales, since they are very time-consuming to make. TIA!
By the way, I'm going to step away from the computer for a moment and warm up a couple of tamales that I purchased over the weekend from a coworker.

Well, being married to a Mexican and spending years in a Hispanic church means lots of yummy tamales consumed. Trivia tidbit: the singular form is tamal
Just in case they ever ask it on Jeopardy!, you know.
My favorites are the ones wrapped in a banana leaf instead of a cornhusk. It gives a different, very delicious, flavor.
Anyone ever had pozole
? Also a very good Mexican holiday dish. You can substitute the pork with chicken if you don't eat pork for whatever reason.
