Christmas tamales in Memphis?

luna ai | Dec 21, 201409:41 AM

Where can I find real, traditional Mexican tamales in Memphis for Christmas Eve? I'm not talking about the skinny, soggy Memphis Hot Tamales that look like a ground beef flauta wrapped in waxed paper. I'm looking for steamed masa, wrapped in a corn husk and filled with pork, chicken, beef, green chilis & cheese, or sweet corn with pineapple. There seems to be a large enough Mexican community here that I should be able to find a decent tamal at Christmas time.
