Hot Tamales

Tamales is one of my most favourite Mexican dishes, as in while tamales are made in many South American countries I like the Mexican style ones.

There is a shop in Waltham, MA that sells all the ingredients to make your own or any other South American dish. It is La Chapincita Market, 424 Moody St, Waltham, MA. 781-894-9552. Their patrons come from Guatemala, peru, Argentina, Mexico and Central America.

You can buy homemade Guatemalan-style pork tamales, corn husks to make your own, dried chipotle pappers, fresh corn tortillas, fried plantain strips, and chicharrones de puerco among other items. Check them out! Carlha
