The holidays are here and for many in SoCal, it means tamales are on the table.
The history of the tamale dates back thousands of years to Mesoamerica, and other countries in the region, where corn was a very important crop to the indigenous people.
Tamale are an important part of the holiday meal (although they are eaten all year), and the people of Mexico particularly feature tamales from the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe on Dec. 12 through Three Kings’ Day on Jan. 6.
