    Are tamales the new bacon?

    After a careful study, I'm pretty sure that the Nintendo guy is actually handing out enchiladas. But they're still free, so have one.

    Must be tamale day. I am eating two green corn tamales at the moment. Got home from work, popped them into a steamer to heat up, turned on the computer to check the J-Walk blog...and I see I made the right choice for dinner.

    I live on the border and don't recognize those Nintendo rolls as anything Mexican. It's not piggies-in-blanket either.

    Nintendo guy is handing out huskless tamales. The penalty is death. Tamales should be steamet inside a corn husk or a piece of banana leaf. If you have a chance to get the banana leaf style tamales, eat them. They are delicious.

    In Chicago there is a guy who comes around to bars with coolers (though they are warmers in this case) full of cheese, chicken and pork tamales with salsa. $5 for a baggie of 6... I have never found a better tamale in the city. There are impostor tamale guys who make the rounds, but I avoid them. The original tamale guy's are the best.

    How do you like your tamale?

    I also thought they looked like enchalidas because the ends are open.

    There are open ended tamales. The penalty for this is flogging. I think they are tamales rather than enchiadas because I don't see the rounded edges of a tortilla and the casing is much too thick. Someone skimped on the masa and made wimpy tamales.

    I think those Nintendo tamales are these:

    Does anybody like sweet tamales? My daughter makes some really delicious sweet tamales. Even some with poppy seeds, which is mixing the Hungarian heritage with the Mexican.

    I've never seem a sweet tamala but I have heard of them. I don't know anyone hereabouts that makes them but would like to find some. Did hear tell of a place in San Antonio where they make sweet tamales but only at christmas time.
