Tri-cities Eats—Hot Tamales


Hot Tamales / 110 S. 4th Ave. Pasco, WA / (509)551-1110 /


I’m really excited to share about Hot Tamales! I love these tamales–they are so good and so different than ones you buy at the store. The ingredients are fresh, the corn is fluffy and the meat is very tender. You’ll love em! I also believe in the story behind Hot Tamales–find the thing you are really good at and do that! Hot Tamales is a family business, Paulina and Mama Lupe make a great team!

“Mama Lupe” has been preparing tamales since she was a young girl in Coalcoman, located in Sierra Madre del Sur, the Southwest region of the state of Michoacan in Mexico. Since growing up in Mexico, she worked for 25 years for a packaged food company to make a wonderful life for her children. Now, she serves up the best tamales in the Tri-cities area!

These tamales would make great tailgate party food! The milder chicken would even be a hit at a children’s birthday party! Hot Tamales flavors are rich and aromatic and the corn is never dried out. The tamales are $17/dozen and come in: chicken, pork and spicy rajas! They are gluten free, lard free and come fully cooked—simply reheat!

Heating Instructions:

Wrap each tamale in a damp paper towel and microwave for approximately 1-2 minutes. If freezing, microwave an additional minute. Or you can place tamales in a steamer basket over boiling water for approximately 8-10 minutes.

Hot Tamales offers delivery Monday through Saturday 11 am – 4 pm with a minimum 2 dozen order for free delivery. You can also visit their store front Monday through Saturday 11 am – 7 pm. Online orders must be placed the night before for following day delivery. You can place your order, here.
