Habaneros

Ancient Mexicans ate spicy food, but modern ingenuity made the Tamale King.

Paging Captain Obvious: Ancient Mexicans Ate Spicy Food from Discovery News.

may_lyn got me dreaming about Hatch chile season, then Vogon surprised me by buying the Tamale King he's been eyeing for a few years. I really am as happy as a Mexican with a leaf blower right now. (:

If you'd like to join us sometime for a tamale-making party, drop me a line with your filling preferences (meats, veg, dessert) and dates that could work for you. (You too, mama May. I'll overnight you tamales.)
