Some foods are New Mexico traditions; among them, tamales. They are excellent for a meal and handy for a quick snack. Plus, what would the holiday table be without them? Saying who makes the best tamales is highly contested, but we found one tiny restaurant in northern New Mexico that deserves a second look — Teresa’s Tamales.
