10 Favorite Places to Get Your Holiday Tamales in Metro Phoenix

If the holidays are about bringing people together, then it makes perfect sense that tamales have become a staple of many people's holiday celebrations. They bring us together to make and then enjoy them because it's impossible not to smile while unwrapping delicious packages of moist masa surrounding all manner of tasting fillings.

But you don't have to be a kitchen whiz to enjoy tamale time. Leave the hard work to any of these Valley favorites and you're in good hands. Just be sure to order ahead since they tend to fly off the shelves during this season.
