A Few Words About Us

The idea started in 2019, when I was struggling to gain employment. I knew I loved food and then my children encouraged me to start selling my plates. Time went on little by little, and plenty of set backs. Hot Tamale Catering originally started at the local farmers market in Ankeny, Iowa. While we didn’t make a dime, our name got out there. Afterwards, we purchased a small food trailer and that was the beginning of creating my delicious, flavorful fresh food with natural ingredients.
