DENVER — Who needs to wrap presents, when you can wrap a warm, delicious tamale?

This month, Adelitas Cocina y Cantina, in Denver, has been making hundreds of tamales - a traditional Mexican meal during Christmastime.

The owner, Silvia Andaya, uses her grandmother's recipe at the restaurant, which she opened back in 2013.

Thankfully, she was patient.
