It’s Tamale Season! Where to go to grab a dozen for your next holiday party? We recommend heading to Barrio Queen in Old Town Scottsdale or Downtown Gilbert, where they’re offering three great varieties. On the menu: their popular pork green chile tamales, and two new flavors, including a Chile Verde del Pollo (pulled chicken with green chile tomatillo sauce) and Tamales de Carne (slow-cooked beef brisket in a combo sauce of ancho-guajillo and chile de arbol). They’re made from a generations-old recipe with many secret ingredients that you won’t find in any other tamales around town.
Tamales are $24 per dozen until December 31.
Advance ordering isn’t required, unless you want dozens and dozens.
