    I love Tamales - I just heard today that there is going to be a Tamale Convention in Indio CA in December

    if it is the one that i am thinking of, it is crazy! if you go you need to get there early or they run out.........

    i am not big on tamales cuz i don't care for chille colorado.....i do like green and the slightly sweet corn ones. i was always more of a menudo fan at the holidays.

    There are some guys at some of the swap meets and farmers markets that get pretty exotic with them - I am still trying to figure out the dessert one I had a couple of months ago - it tasted like it had a mixture of molasis and chocolate - man it was tasty

    I found the link to the festival and it sounds crazy - 70 vendors - 125K guests over 2 days
