Black olives in tamales?

chowfish | Jul 6, 2003 03:25 AM

I love tamales but am not willing to spend the time and energy to make them so bought some from coworker's sister. Tamales were great but was very surprised to see sliced black olives in mixture. Sister of a Chowhounder told me olives are common in cheese tamales (these were pork and chicken). Are they typical in meat tamales and I've just been unobservant? Is it a regional difference?
