First I want to thank Karie over at The Five Fish because I didn’t know you take Tamales out the corn husk before you eat them (I know *smacking head*). I want to share that our family is Catholic and we eat a lot of meatless meals. We received the vegetarian tamales from Tucson Tamale and the whole family loved them and have requested them to change up our menu. This means Friday nights are going to get a little spicy around here!
I was impressed that the Tucson Tamales arrived in a cold packed container and packed 2 to a package. These were super easy to make, the directions suggest steaming in the microwave or on the stove. I steamed mine in the oven by placing them on a baking sheet and adding a bowl of water. These are definitely created with love. Each tamale was carefully enfolded in the husk and the inside was was delicious and not too spicy. The quality of food is great and they use REAL cheese!
Celebrate the holidays this year with the rich taste of the Southwest by savoring gourmet, traditional Mexican fare from Tucson Tamale. Made in the traditional method with warm masa, gentle corn husks, and a bouquet of flavors. Spending hours together, embracing the connectedness of family, infusing all the love right into the food.
Inspired by the events of one man’s love for a woman whose family had a love and passion for bringing family together by making tamales. Todd Martin was not only in love with his soon to be wife Sherry, but he also fell in love with the taste and process of making tamales. Trying to satisfy his desire to find really good tamales Todd Martin did what others do, he began making his own! In 2008, the Tucson Tamale company was born. Made from small batch, high quality ingredients and every tamale is hand rolled, steamed and packaged for happiness.
The corn used in the masa is organic and non-GMO. Traditional tamales are made with lard but Tucson Tamale knew they were different and wanted to continue on their unique path and use non-GMO expeller pressed canola or sunflower oil. Every November Tucson Tamale makes their signature “holiday” tamale for Thanksgiving. Stuffed with fresh roasted turkey, organic vegetables and the amazing sage masa. Naturally gluten free and since the tamales are not made with lard, vegetarians, meat lovers and even vegans can enjoy the wide variety of meatless and meaty tamales delivered right to your door.
