A Tamalada Christmas with Newscenter 25’s Griselda Perez

Newscenter 25's Griselda Perez takes us inside her family's home and shows us what is for dinner

Arguably the best sight on Christmas day- unwrapped like a gift- the tamale- is a staple in a Mexican household.

But before we get to this sight, we have to start at the beginning.

A tamalada is a tamale making party, an easy call for a celebration.

I was tasked with a really awesome job of showing how I celebrate Christmas with my family, so I’m here with my mom, we’re going to make tamales which is a very traditional thing with our family, which we’re Mexican-American obviously and what we call, la tamalada, Perez said.
