SACURRRITYYYY...!!! (said in Bon Qui Qui's voice). Tamales don't need to be pimped out with sour cream or cheddar. They are perfect the way they are.

12. Confusing a buttered-up yellow corn with cilantro on top for its WAY MORE attractive, way more delicious legit version: white corn with a ton of mayo, queso cotija, and chile y limón.
