El Paso Mom team member, Vickie E. says, “Gussies Tamales and Bakey is our family go to for tamales in town. I remember when I was little I would wake up bright and early with my dad to stand in line for tamales for our Christmas Eve celebration. I’ve carried that tradition on to my adult years. While we’re there we also grab a dozen of their pan dulce. You can’t go wrong with Gussies!”
