They usually have beef stew, chicken, onion, peppers, olives, raisins, etc.

The owner of the colombian restaurant on San Pedro & Jackson Keller lived many years in Venezuela and I bet anything that he makes them for Christmas.

Before anybody asks... that's the way they look like before being cooked
This looks like the combo...maybe she was from Venezuela vs Guatamala then...

Thanks Perticusrex,

No, I haven't found a place that sell them (Maybe puertorican make them)
but when I went to the colombian restaurant in San Pedro & Jackson Keller the owner told me that he lived about 10-15 years in Venezuela and I believe he said that all his kids live over there, too.

So I wouldn't be surprised if he makes them, but they are a christmas dish.

Otherwise, you are gonna have to go to "Miguelito's" in Houston (I'd call before going )

My Mom swears by some place off Rigsby, I just don't know the name but I also found those to be not that great either though she was telling me that people during the Holidays have to put in orders in October for tamales in December!

Some HEB stores have tamales now, in the same heated case as the rotisserie chickens.

That's what I was thinking until they said something about putting in orders. As far as I've ever known Ruben's does not take orders. The only way to get them is to go and stand in line with everyone else. And the line can sometimes be very, very long during the holidays.
