Down in Texas, right on the border between El Paso and Juarez, there's a stand -- actually, a shack -- that sells the best tamales in the known universe. But they're only slightly better than the green-chile tamales sold every day at La Popular. These fat rolls of masa, pork and whole chunks of fiery chile come freshly steamed and still wrapped in their husks for easy eating on the run, and the rest of La Popular's limited menu is just as good.
Tips from foursquare
Absolutely the best tomales north of the border. Handmade from scratch. Used to get these when we had an office in Denver.
