The Sandoval family has been making Christmas a little tastier at Tamales by La Casita since 1975. What seems like a simple corn wrapper filled with a little corn masa and pork actually requires a team of cooks to make enough tamales to keep north Denverites happy. Videographer Andrew Bateman took a look into what it takes to make all those pork and red chile or vegetarian green chile tamales.
Why are tamales so popular during the holidays? Perhaps that's because it's the only time when whole families get together with enough hands to prepare the labor-intensive treats. But when family's not at hand, Tamales by La Casita is there for you.
