20: The Twelve Tamales of Christmas from Los Sombreros

If you've been to Los Sombreros in Scottsdale, the cute little converted brick house of classy central Mexican cuisine with exotic ingredients, then you already know why its Twelve Tamales of Christmas is so popular and why it makes such a great gift for tamale lovers and first-time tasters alike.

With a little something for everyone -- spicy, sweet, meat, veggie -- gift givers can mix and match from a dozen delicious fillings, or hell, just get one of each, then pick up their tamales in a pretty red gift box decorated with an ornament.

Read on to get the deets.

Available from now until Friday, December 23, Los Sombreros offers the following twelve tamale fillings:

Smoked Chicken Chipotle Pork Red Chile Beef Tomatillo Chicken Spicy Pork Beef & Cheese Green Corn Rajas & Cheese Chorizo & Black Bean Pineapple & Raisin Canela Chocolate

A gift box of one dozen can be had mixed for $26.95, or for twelve of one kind, $24.95. To order, call 480-994-1799 or stop in for eats and place your order at the restaurant

Note: a 48-hour notice and pre-payment is required.
