Gotta put in a plug for Leona's tamales which many of you know - they are sold in the small cafe just next to the Santuario de Chimayo in New Mexico. Made with Chimayo "Holy Chile" They also make chile ristras and sell packs of "Christmas Mix" Chile (red+Green dried chile). There's a gift for ya! They ship and they are GOOD! http://www.leonasrestaurante.com
