@Shannon, my family is all southern so no northern influences that I know of. Honestly, it's a tradition for us that's not many years in the works. I think I first heard of the Christmas tamale thing when there was a tamale shop near White Bridge and Charlotte. We thought, why not? We love good tamales. And we were hooked.
Thanks, Jack. I'll hunt them down and give them a try. The creamy green-chili rice sounds amazing.
Since it is an open thread and it's almost Christmas, where's the best place to get my Christmas tamales this year?
Brittle Brothers rocks!
Am I the only one out there who never really cared for dressing/stuffing?
Nicki, I finally made it last weekend. You were right. The BBQ on cornbread is awesome. And cheap! I don't know when I'll make it down that way again but if I'm in the area, I will stop.
2 notes - first, the Hwy 100 location has moved onto Hwy 46 between I-40 and Hwy 100. That's probably 5-10 minutes off the Dickson exit. Second, if you have a teenage boy like I do and he orders the Papa Burger, watchout. 1/2 pound ground beef, topped with 1/2 pound BBQ, bacon, cheese and all the toppings. Gosh, to be 15 again....
@TL, that list is priceless. My favs are 4 and 6.
On the soup line (no pun intended), have you tried the green and red chilis at Taquaria del Sol? Not what I was expecting but very good. Are there any other joints in town with good chili? It seems to be hard to find, too.
