Three new food trucks will join the Food Truck Friday lunch program in downtown Pasco: Hot Tamales, Fast & Curryous and Rex’ Top Shelf.

I’m so excited to be sharing a multi-generation recipe.

Paulina Perez, owner of Hot Tamales

Hot Tamales is owned and operated by Paulina Perez with a little help from her mom, Lupe. Perez has been selling Mama Lupe’s tamales since she was 6 years old.

“It’s my mom’s passion for cooking that inspired me to start this business and a nod to her demand for freshness that makes all the difference in our tamales,” Perez said.

Hot Tamales will initially sell three fresh varieties: pork, chicken and veggie.

For half a dozen, pay $9.99 or bump it up to a dozen for $15.99 — both depending on the variety ordered.

Hot Tamales products are made and sold fresh from an authentic family recipe that dates back to more than 100 years in the Michoacan region of Mexico with a few modern-day twists: they don’t use as much masa as others and there’s no lard to be found allowing them to boast that their tamales are not only super fresh but lard-free and gluten-free.
