Hot Tamale Trail

Visitors to Mississippi find a welcome and unexpected treat in the Hot Tamale Trail, which winds its way through the Mississippi Delta region from Vicksburg to Tunica. The tamale has been a staple of the Delta region for over 100 years, which began with an influx of migrant workers — and their recipes — from Mexico. The people behind this flavorful, labor-intensive dish are legends in their own time and keep a place of almost regal stature among diners from across the globe. If you’re looking for a vacation that your taste buds won’t soon forget, simply follow the Hot Tamale Trail to the South’s most authentic tamale shops.
