Here Are 10 Places In Arizona To Get The Best Tamales
There’s no experience more disappointing than unwrapping a corn husk to find a dry, tasteless tamale. I’ve had my fair share and while you can try reviving it with some sauce and cheese, the masa remains dry, the filling bland, and will overall just leave you with a disillusioned view in trying to find delicious Mexican food away from home.
Don’t fret! We’ve compiled a list of some restaurants around the state that offer deliciously moist, flavorful tamales that will have your taste buds screaming in delight. Check them out!
