Did anyone get sick? Nope. Just a busybody neighbor with too much time and righteous indignation on his/her hands. This is in the DFW Metroplex, but I have long adored my local tamales ladies here in Houston. I had one bad experience referenced elsewhere, but I actually begged online for a tamale lady hook-up until I discovered Alamo and Gerardo’s locally. (Short version, I was cheated not poisoned.) We have a looooooong tradition of tamale preparation and distribution hereabouts.
Anyway, this is why we can’t have nice things. Cause some folks would rather be prissy prigs than enjoy a good home made tamale. And as un amante de tamales, I just can’t respect that.
