Not long ago, I waxed rhapsodic about the tamales at Tamales Moreno, a canary yellow shack on Morrison Road that's been hustling tamales for a half-dozen years. But the women who make the fleets of tamales in the above snap -- they can be seen smearing masa on husks in a small room just behind the dining quarters -- give Tamales Moreno a run for their money, turning out plump torpedoes filled with sweet masa, pork and an earthy red chile that's reminiscent of Sante Fe. And that's just the beginning of what this notable, strip mall Mexican joint, complete with a panaderia and formidable salsa bar, struts on its menu.
