Got An Idea For a Dream Tamale? Tucson Tamale Company Could Make It Reality

Posted By on Wed, Apr 10, 2013 at 9:00 AM

Locally-owned restaurant Tucson Tamale Company is in the throes of Tamale Throwdown 2013, their search for the newest, greatest gourmet tamale flavor as suggested their fans, friends and customers from the Tucson area.

Last year's winner was the Paella tamale, filled with spanish chorizo, roasted chicken, shrimp, peas, red peppers and rice, wrapped in saffron-flavored masa — and they're looking to Tucson for their next crowd-sourced follow-up.

As they say in their Facebook posting advertising the throwdown, "any ingredient, any meal, everything is on the table." Personally, nothing strikes me as perfect as their Sonora tamale (chicken with green chile salsa), but you guys have to have a greater food imagination than I do.

Head over to their Facebook page to share your idea in the comments — if your idea is chosen, you'll get three dozen tamales and your idea on the menu for the next year.
