Move over turkey. It's time for the holiday tamales.

The arrival of the holiday season means a boost in business at Alamo Tamales. We got a behind-the-scenes look at these tamales makers cranking out 120,000 tamales a week to meet the holiday rush.

All tamales made are sold the same day they are steamed and cooked. The family-owned Alamo Tamales has been in business in Houston for 50 years.
