Today we visit with the absolute giants in the tamale industry, La Popular. The Tamale House has gained a reputation for not only making quality tamales year round, but also takes pride in giving back to the community as we will find out with this Q&A with both Jesse Moreno Sr. and Jr. at La Popular.

You ma pick up fresh, hot tamales for the holidays at either location, even on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve.
