North Texas Cantina Laredo Locations to Showcase Tamales for Christmas Season

Long a tradition in Mexican communities, tamales have become a part of the Thanksgiving and Christmas tradition in Texas, too.  Because of their labor-intensive preparation, tamales are normally only prepared for special occasions like Christmas.  All six Cantina Laredo locations in North Texas (excluding airport locations) will be offering house-made tamales to go, with pick up available every day with at least six hours notice.  Both Chicken and Beef tamales will be available at $16.95/dozen.

Tamale Facts

  • The corn masa-and-meat bundles — individually wrapped in corn husks and then steamed — are part of the traditional Mexican celebration of las posadas, which commemorates Mary and Joseph's search for shelter before the birth of Jesus.
  • One theory is tamales have been traditional Christmas Eve fare for centuries because they're portable, easy to store and inexpensive to make for large gatherings.
  • Through the years, the preparation of the labor-intensive food became a social event, called a tamalada, as womenfolk from ranches across Mexico and what's now the American Southwest gathered to prepare the Christmas Eve feast.
  • Tamales date back to the 13th century and the Aztec empire.
