This is the last weekend to order your holiday tamales from the Hispanic Interest Coalition of Alabama. They come in chicken, pork, or poblano pepper and cheese varieties, and reportedly freeze well.
“Tamales are a traditional Mexican holiday dish. We are delighted to have brought this custom to Birmingham through our annual Christmas Tamale Sale.” says Isabel Rubio, ¡HICA’s Executive Director. “Just remember to order plenty as we only do this during the Christmas season!”
Order through Dec. 13 at www.hispanicinterest.org/tamales/ and pick up Friday, Dec. 17.
The authentic Mexican tamales are $15 for half a dozen and $25 per dozen, and proceeds benefit HICA, a 501 (c)(3) United Way agency dedicated to the social, civic and economic integration of Hispanic families and individuals in Alabama.
