    Have the tamales at "The Tortilla Factory."

    Just had lunch there. Had the green chile, extra hot tamales.

    Used up a whole package of the pocket sized kleenex.

    My sinuses haven't been this clear for months!:D

    One good spoonful of home grown horseradish will accomplish the same thing. :D

    When I was on the road I used to park in Cheyenne and ride my bicycle around the perimeter counter clockwise. Spent the whole day stopping at out of the way places I wouldn't normally get to.

    If you get proper green chile, your forehead sweats, your eyes water, you sneeze and your nose runs. Ignunt folk will tell you the best grows in Hatch, NM, but that just makes everybody claim their chili comes from Hatch. Sichler farms from San Antonio is "Da Kine"

    I spent 5 years of my life in Asian countries,,,
    I've had to eat stuff that melted the fillings in my teeth,,,
    But I did it because there wasn't anything else for me to exist on.

    Food should not be painful.

    Stopped there once when I had my bike on back of my rig. Your right, good eats. That green chilli was a thing of wonder. I had a pork burrito covered in it. I've been meaning to stop back but just can't make it happen yet...

    several years ago, me and a buddy of mine were running around, out of town looking for parts for project i had going on. well about 1 pm we started getting hungry, so we decided on getting some Mexican food. found what looked like a decent restaurant so we stopped and went in. well the waitress brought us a couple of menus, and took our drink order, then brought out a huge basket of chips and two large bowls of salsa. one was green, and the other was red. i went for the green, assuming it would be milder than the red salsa. huge wrong assumption on my part! it didn't really start out that hot, but kind of built in intensity as you ate more of it. after eating quite a few chips with the green salsa, and sweat popping out on my forehead, i looked over at my buddy, "Don't eat the green salsa. that stuff is hot!" he just laughed at me!

    All that is, is dyed green horseradish !. There is a difference between wasabi & horseradish, yes wasabi is sometimes called Japanese horseradish, and yes they are in the same family along with mustard !...............

    True Wasabi is almost impossible to find in America. My wife made her own, it doubled as paint stripper. Its lots more complicated than just horseradish. Hers was aged and had a few other things in it. Gunpowder and iron filings by the taste. Hers did burn the next morning. Be warned most restraunt tone it down for American tastes...

    Calling it horseradish is like mistaking the egg roll mustard for your friendly yellow squeeze bottle.

    It still tastes good irreguardless of what root they may have or not have used.

    It goes well on most foods.
    Mexican or otherwise.

    DW- Hey brudder- dat how in Hawai'i you know someone be Kama'aina (local boy). They looking for wasabi for their Spam musubi... :cool:

    Once saw a tourist there that had gotten into a restaurant that catered to locals- he had ordered the bento lunch special- which came with a big dollop of wasabi on the side. He thought it was guacamole- scooped up a big forkful and ate it on its own.

    His reaction was surprisingly similar to being hit with a Taser.

    I've seen that look a couple times, Okinawa, Hong Kong and my wife's kitchen. One of my boys friends came over for dinner, claimed he'd had all kinds of Asian food "authentic" was his word. Nothing was said when he started spooning on the hot mustard, four tablespoons worth. He got into the second bite before the burn started. Cried like a baby...

    The few times Id had tamales with pork.
    What are your favorite types tamales?
    My reheating them usually dont go well and I end up with soft mushy tamales.
    Any opinions on those made using lard vs. Crisco?

    Next Time I'll try Alaskan Wild Salmon Tamale's.

    the nice thing about tamales, is they can filled with just about any filling of meat.

    i have had pork, beef, chicken and goat. i like them all, but my favorite, is slow cooked shredded goat meat tamales!

    personally, i think lard is better than Crisco.
