This time of year is my absolute favorite. It’s a time that our families and friends get together, we share happiness and love with strangers and the Christmas spirit shines through everybody. Admittedly, I love this season more than others and not just because of the holidays. This time of year brings one of my favorite things in the world – tamales!
Like every good Texan, we have a ‘go-t0’ person or spot for tamales each year. No joke, I had my tamale lady on speed dial many years ago. Unfortunately, she couldn’t keep up with constant texting and wanting tamales on demand which made me search for another source.
That’s where Urban Taco comes in. They offer delicious tamales and I can get them anytime I want. They started their 12 days of tamales on December 13th and you don’t want to miss out on them!

The two that are offered right now at that price is the Merry Berry Margarita (a holiday’rita with bold red color and tart-sweet cranberry taste) and Ponches de Frutas (a traditional homemade fruit and spice punch consisting of green apples, oranges, sugar cane, guayaba, cinnamon, tamarind, tejocote and hibiscus leaf).
Grab these tamales and cocktails at one of their two locations – Mockingbird Station or Mckinney Avenue.
