Thanksgiving is over, which means for those of who celebrate Christmas, everything is in full swing. And in Texas, there’s nothing more Christmas-y than a big mess of tamales.

To celebrate the season, Urban Taco is bringing back its 12 Days of Tamales beginning December 13 through Christmas Eve. Each day features a different tamale, including two new versions: pollo con pipian verde on December 21 and picadillo enchilado on December 23.

Customers can purchase the tamales for lunch or dinner with a side of black beans and roasted corn con crema for $9. They can also pick up at least a dozen for to-go orders for $16.95 with a day’s notice.

Urban Taco is also unveiling its seasonal drink menu on Monday, December 2. Keep your bloodstream warm and buzzed with drinks like ponches de frutas, a traditional Mexican spice punch with green apples, oranges, sugar cane, guayaba, cinnamon, tamarind, tejocote and hibiscus leaf, and Oaxaca old fashioned, which has a Mezcal Vago twist on the classic cocktail.

The 12 Days of Tamales menu is available at both Urban Taco locations: 3411 McKinney Ave. in Uptown and 5331 E. Mockingbird Ln. #125 in Mockingbird Station.
