    Yours Truly was introduce to your TAMALES by my sister Margaret that lives in San Antonio. This is our home town and today by far these Tamales are the GREATEST. So Thank you Margaret for leading your sister Carmen to a great product. Keep up the good product that I really enjoy during Christmas and any holiday. For sure the owner of DELIA’S knows how to make Tamales.
