Tamales is a food that my Mexican family loves. When my grandmother comes back from Texas, my dad and I usually see her and we always have tamales. Tamales are made of corn dough mixture then filled with whatever meat you prefer, I prefer pork. Then it's wrapped in banana leaves before its cooked. My dad and I love tamales and its like our thing. We usually get tamales together if it's just the two of us. Tamales are probably my favorite Mexican food.
