blue orn tamales, vegetarian tamales, vegan tamalesInspired 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.tucson tamale, homemade tamales,

Our family had the amazing sampling of the chile relleno, blue corn veggie and cheese, and the black bean and cheese. My kids couldn’t get enough! They questioned me when we first received the package as to what exactly tamales were, but they were hooked once they dove into these delicacies. The taste of a truly authentic tamale and one that was absolutely divine. We have always had meat based tamales so the vegetarian options were a wonderful change up and totally satisfying.

If you are in Arizona, you can find these tasty delicacies at AJ’s Fine Foods, Safeway or visit one of their three locations in Tucson. Eat in or take out! Take some home to enjoy for later, they are safe to store in the freezer. For those of you not in Arizona or the immediate area to Tucson we are happy to share this wonderful giveaway for a sampler pack of a box of happiness with Tucson Tamales.

    THE FIRST TIME I ATE TAMALES WAS IN COLORADO. I MADE FOR A MEXICAN REPRESENTATIVE OF DAV WHAT WE CALL IN PUERTO RICO, PASTELES AND HE BROUGHT ME TAMALES. THE TAMALES IS WITH CORN WHILE PASTELES IS WITH MASA OF BANANA, PLANTAINS, ETC. TAMALES IS A TRADITIONAL MEAL IN MEXICO WHILE PASTELES IS OF PUERTO RICO. DON’T THINK THAT PASTELES ARE CAKES. WE DON’T CALL PASTELES TO A CAKE. I LIKE TRADITIONAL FOOD AND MORE WHEN IS TRADITIONAL FOOD FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS.
