Do you buy & eat the homemade food (usually burritos, tamales) sold by vendors who are on the street selling? They often come into the laundromat when we're there. I know most don't have Food Handler Permits which isn't necessarily any guarantee.

Life is a gamble. Sure, you could get sick.

I have bought tamales from the ladies and kids who I see selling them out here in Oregon. I have had many enjoyable meals, and never an upset stomach.

I have in the past. I think the first might have been in Juárez Mexico around 1968... The last perhaps at the Salsa Festival in Albuquerque...

I have on occasion, and lived to tell the story. I was buying from someone delivering burritos to my workplace, but it was very hush-hush, which added a mystique to the whole process. I'm not very afraid of food out of trucks since I used to eat a lot of that in my Philadelphia college days.

Sure I do! Never been sick yet. 20+ years of living on the edge.

Some encouraging comments about not getting sick BUT when I want tamales--I'll wait for Hunter Wold's--he makes the BEST ones I've had anywhere and his chicken enchiladas are excellent, too.

Try Navajo Kneel Down Bread, close to Tamales but different. Good luck.

Have never heard of this--where to buy? --or find a recipe?

i buy from the roach coach here every couple of weeks. It is by far the best Mexican food here in town. In fact I would go as far as to say its the best food in town, the other restaurants here in town are a joke.

I am sure the stuff is great and fresh, but I am just not comfortable with buying from street venders.
