What to serve with tamales for Christmas Eve?
I'm getting tamales from a super, little hole-in-the-wall place here in Spokane for my family's Christmas Eve. What else would you serve with them?
Tequila along with the music by the same name. Also, get a 10 ounce can of Ro-Tel and a pound of Velveeta along with tortilla chips. Melt the Velveeta mixed with the Ro-Tel in the nuker. Stir the melted ingredients and serve with the chips.
I'd recommend Mexican rice.
In case you've never made this, what you do is saute one cup of long-grain rice in a bit of hot olive or vegetable oil until the rice begins to brown slightly.
Add a cup of chicken stock, a half can of tomato sauce, a couple of cloves of minced garlic, a couple of tablespoons of chili powder, a bit of oregano and cumin, a chopped onion, and diced bell pepper. Stir well.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and cook until liquid is fully absorbed.
That's a rough estimate of how to make the stuff, anyway. Mui bueno.
