My friend and I split a 1/2 Spred and still could not finish it. We also split an order of fries. We do this every year when we make our annual trip to Hot Springs for the races.

Purchase 1/2 dozen frozen tamales. Freeze 5, take one, cover with chili, lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese dip! Oh my goodness, what a yummy treat with a beer. Enough for two. Tortilla chips to scoop. These are the best tamales in the world.
