Potato Tamale

The Irvine farmers market has a tamale stand. Although it's 7 dollars for 3 tamales, I thought 'eh, why not?'

These are the potato and green chili variety. They're quite large and one was enough to fill me up but Richard enjoyed that I included some beans and rice with the meal. I always find tamales to be dry for my taste; they must be drowned in some sort of salsa/hot sauce. Even so, I enjoyed these very much and am looking forward to testing a new flavor.

Teddy, i've bought these at our Farmers Markets here!! A little pricey, but nice to have vegetarian AND vegan varieties. Try 'em all if you can!

Potato tamales? Interesting! I've never seen or heard of that before.

I'm mixed on tamales. I like them from the stand, from time to time, but I'm not the biggest fan when we heat them up at home. Something is missing.

Oh well - maybe I need to try potato tamales :)
