Before they were used to wrap tamales, corn husks were used as shoes, boats, printing paper, and tamale filling. Today's Groupon celebrates the corn husks that have found their niche. For $10, you get three dozen tamales to go from Delicious Tamales, a $21 value. Choose from traditional pork, jalapeño pork, or bean and jalapeño varieties; double husking for the husk lover in your family costs extra. Pick up your tamales from any of Delicious Tamales' six locations. This deal cannot be redeemed online.
Much like a middle-school P.E. teacher or a kiwi warmed in your pocket, once you peel back the rough exterior of a tamale, you'll be greeted with softness, warmth, and a fragrant bouquet. Delicious Tamales' hand-wrapped, succulent starch pockets are always made from stone-ground corn masa and steamed the proper way to keep them moist and flavorful. Striking a spicy yet not too fiery balance, Delicious Tamales represent a truce between militant filling proponents and irreconcilable masa supporters. Pick up your three dozen to celebrate Let's Eat Some Tamales Day (April 23), or for when a simple birthday cake just doesn't scream, "Happy corn-and-pork birthday, you old so-and-so."
A San Antonio institution, Delicious Tamales has grown to sell over 2.1 million tamales a year. Owned and operated by Valerie Gonzalez, Delicious Tamales is an authentic one-woman commando operation designed to make sure everyone—and she means everyone—gets enough to eat.
