Houston pop up business adds new twist to holiday classic meal
During the holidays, many families eat tamales. Traditionally there's pork and chicken, but this business is changing things up a bit.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A Houston couple is changing up a classic Hispanic family holiday tradition.

A local pop-up business decided to take the Christmas tamales tradition and add a delicious twist.

If you've heard of birria tacos, then you'll be familiar with this new quirk.

They're called Birrimales.

Birria is basically Mexican beef stew. Chances are, you've seen people dipping birria tacos into a side cup of stew in viral social media videos.

A local couple decided to combine both.

The couple is making the birrimales from home and selling them at different spots around town.

You can find the business on social media @birria_tamales!
