Win This: Tamales From Urban Taco

Urban-Taco-Tamalesby Steven Doyle

Urban Taco loves to make tamales and as we previously reported they have a new version for the twelve days of Christmas.

This special menu of daily changing seasonal hand-made tamales is available December 13-24, 2012.  Guests can order the daily selection during lunch or dinner as a tamale trio plate with black beans and roasted corn con crema for $9.75.  In addition to enjoying the tamales at the restaurant, place an order for any variety of tamale to go with 24-hours’ notice, with a minimum order of one dozen for $24.  


Visit either the McKinney Avenue or Mockingbird Station location in Dallas for your tamale fix. We are giving away 2 dozen of these bad boys at the end of the day. Put in your pitch and enjoy a bunch of tamales just in time for Christmas. Jot a comment below and we will randomly select today!

  1. Okay, I’ll play. I have yet to find any tamales that even come close to my grandmother’s tamales… but, she has not been with us for many years. So, put my name in the mix and we shall see. 🙂

  2. We’re always looking for new traditions – so I think tamales might be it! Sounds like a delicious plan to me!

    My mom made such great tamales that upon eating one, the husband of one of her coworkers asked who had made them and then remarked “I didn’t know Sharon was Mexican”.

    I’m dreaming, of a Tamale Christmas….

  14. One of my favorite memories was learning to cook with my next door neighbor. She had someone come in to teach her how to make tamales. I remember standing I
    On a stool chopping onions and seeing the husks laid out on the table. I always think about this when I eat them. Would be nice to win them to share with her son in her memory.

    It’s true. I am half Mexican. I love Tex-Mexican food and love tamales. I wish I knew how to make them. I heard it is a very labor-intensive feat but very worthwhile.
