Since the Delta Hot Tamale Festival in Greenville happens this month, we decided to take a look at one of the state’s most famous dishes. We visited Doe’s Eat Place in Greenville and Original Solly’s Hot Tamales in Vicksburg. We also talked with the Southern Foodway Alliance about the origin and history of Mississippi tamales. Our coverage also includes a recipe and a list of restaurants that make some of the best tamales in the state.
