    so i got up about 6am today and my dad and i went to downey/bellgardens to get some 20lbs of what we call 'maza' in spanish for tamales. yup thats what were gonna make today! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
    as we go to that place we noticed a line that went halfway around the mexican super market some quarter way around the parking lot and infront of a strip of strip mall. my dad had to get to work so we ended up leaving. i came back again and the line seemd to shorten some 30 people. that line was for the 'maza' only! it took about 2hrs [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] to get to the entrace. then another line of about 20 min. then finally! for 20lbs of the main ingredient i got it. while i was in line i saw people get about 100lbs of this stuff. man!
    so my mom is making them as i speak! cant wait till about 40 hrs for them to be done! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    I love tamales. I first tried them in Oaxaca so I was fortunate enough to enjoy the real deal... By golly I miss REAL Mexican food.

    Cheers

    I've always wanted to try tamales, but as of yet haven't gotten the opportunity. Meh, I'm sure I'll get to, I live in California afterall... Anyhoo, I hope you enjoy them, I'm sure they'll be worth the wait!

    Is the maza people are lining up for different from the masa that's sold in 5 lb bags for making tortillas?

    I'm not to clear on what a tamale is, does it include Jalapeno peppers? If it does, I'll LOVE it, I LOVE hot peppers, anything spicy I will eat.
