Anything you want. Pork, chicken, beef, cheese, cheese and green chiles. The dulces can have stuff like coconut and pineapple, raisins, apple and cinnamon, bla bla.

So it would be fair to say that a dulce is more like a desert thing? I had a tamale once and found the texture to be a bit repugnant, not sure what I was eating either. I did not want to offend my host who made them by asking "what the hell did I just eat?" I come from another country where that type of food is not common place. Taco bell maybe, but that is about it. I like really good mexican food, but find much of it to be bland, so the good places get my repeat business....

Dessert, yes. Dulce means sweet. There are tamales and there are tamales. Some good, some very good, and some disgusting. Just gotta root around until you find the good ones.

This is true. It's why I posted looking for some good tamales. Not everyone can make good ones, let me tell you.

We had a potluck on Wednesday at work, and my co-worker brought in some DELICIOUS beef/red chili tamales from a restaurant in La Puente (La Poblana). So I went yesterday after work and ordered a couple of dozen. Not so local to where I live, but I work close by. I can hardly stand waiting for them.

Oh yeah, I was going to start looking around, but these came my way and I had to go with it since it was a sure thing and time is short.

I drove 2.5 hours (each way) just for burritos a few weeks ago, and stocked up with enough to last for a week.

If those La Puente tamals are that good, it might be worth driving there every now and then.

my husband made some kick azz tamales last year in Texas - Yummy - too busy to make them this year. The idiot at Food 4 Less wanted $1.00 per tamale. In TX we could get a dozen for less than $10 - I think $7.50/dozen - pork, beef, chicken - yummmmmyyyyyy

You ain't in Texas no mo, honeychild.

At least a buck each is pretty common all over So Cal, except for the boutique places in L.A. that cater to hipsters and people with too much money.
