If you're not lucky enough to know an abuelita who makes hundreds of tamales at Christmas - and wants to give them to you - you can still satisfy your need courtesy of Cantina Laredo.
Tamales are an easy way to spice up a holiday party but the sheer work to make them is not an option for many.
Wow the crowd with the traditional Mexican dish wrapped in individual packages. Cantina Laredo offers housemade holiday tamales to-go, filled with your choice of seasoned chicken or beef, for $16.95 per dozen.
Orders must be placed at least 24 hours in advance, and will be available for pick-up at the River North restaurant on Monday, December 23 and Tuesday, December 24.
