Who makes the best homemade tamal in Phoenix?

During Food City’s 21st Annual Tamale Competition, judges determined that Valley resident Elena Bustamante makes the best homemade tamal in Phoenix. Her red chile and pork recipe from Sonora, Mexico, managed to win first place on Sunday at the Food City located at 21st Street and McDowell Road.

Colorful papel picado and five-pointed star piñatas decorated the finalists’ tables inside the supermarket offering a place to celebrate a generational tradition among Mexican and Latin American families that has been adopted by many in the United States.
