Years ago this tamelería decided to add rainbow tamales to their menu, and their reason behind it is uplifting.
María Tamales, in San Pedro, Tlaquepaque, now has a total of 18 tamal flavors, including their bright and sweet flavored, rainbow tamal. This recipe that was discussed and planned for an entire year before becoming a reality, has a special meaning to the people at María Tamales. María Tamales wanted to do something to celebrate the diversity of their community in Guadalajara especially during Pride, which eventually helped them think of the rainbow tamal. As member of the María Tamales team, Alberto Rebolledo, proudly says:
“Bienvenidos todos y todas a María Tamales. Esto es lo que somos. Vivímos en una sociedad bastante diversa.”
