I’ve made a vow that whenever I see a sign in Louisiana promising Hot Tamales that I will stop and purchase at least one tamale.
Which is what caused me to pull into the Oasis Sno Balls and Tamales stand in Arabi Louisiana.
The family running the little business is Mexican but the hot tamales are pure Deep South-style.
Unfortunately the salsa that comes with the meal is from a jug, most likely labelled “Pace”
