Fried Bread Breakfast

Every morning on my way to ITAM I pass a set of food stalls in front of the entrance to the Barranca del Muerto metro station.  A common item at many of these stands are tamales — not just the normal steamed variety, but fried in a bowl of hot, smoking grease.  These tamales, which are made of ground corn and are filled with green or red salsa or mole, already have a soft, crumbly, doughy consistency before they’re dumped in the hot oil.  And after?  Well, they’re basically fried bread!

There is nothing like the smell of deep fried tamales in the morning.
