Torta de Tamal

Torta de Tamal: A corn tamal smothered in a spicy red or green salsa and gift-wrapped in a as-big-as-your-face torta bun. That's a lot of food for 7 pesos (50 cents).


  1. You finally had one! Can't wait to hear what you thought. Thumbs up? Down? Too bland?

  2. Um, thumbs down. The sauce was a little too spicy for breakfast, and there was an overall carb overload. If you try it, lemme know what you think.

  3. You had what in Mexico is considered to be a truly authentic Mexican meal. Only in Mexico, will you find a tamale sandwich!!! (A few years ago, I actually made and ate a Torta de Chile Relleno. It was pretty good!)
