tamal is singular and tamales is plural. No such thing as a tamale

I never thought about this. Wiki pretty much agrees:

The form tamal is preferred by some to tamale, as tamal is the Standard Spanish singular form while tamale is generally analyzed as a back-formation from the plural tamales, thus proscribed. Note however that tamale exists in Spanish dialect.

However you say the singular, the plural tamales are good.

I'll just make sure to always have more than 1 Tamal on my plate so I don't sound stupid :)

Robert - I just saw this pic of breakfast tamales, not sure what's in it but guessing sausage/eggs or ?
