Hot Tamales, a Holiday Tradition Pachanga // SF

Hot Tamales, a Holiday Tradition Pachanga // SF

Learn step by step how to make Tamales. A wonderful crew of co host who have mastered the art of Tamale making.

$25 donation will get you step by step recipe, assembly process, and folding techniques and 10 Tamales to take home or steam and eat there.

We will focus on a traditional Mexican fold but if you are comfortable with the double husk fold and tie, it’s all good. Looking forward to seeing you there.

Proceeds will benefit Burrito Project of San Francisco an organization of volunteers who make 400 Burritos a month to feed homeless around the city.




Ever since I was a kid, I was always in the kitchen cooking. One of my favorite times was sitting with my mom, aunts and cousins in an assembly line making Tamales by the 100’s. We joked, we laughed and we bonded.

Today I want to bring you that experience and teach you how to make Tamales: start to finish. A $25 contribution will get you the entire lesson, 10 Tamales to steam at home or steam there if you are willing to wait. Will provide Masa (Dough) Filling and Corn Husk. Your donation will go towards Burrito Project of SF, a Community support group that gets together, makes 400 burritos and hands them out in the street for homeless every month. Come learn, have a refreshment, bond and share with your friends for your New Years Tamalada Party!
