As Tamale Joe says…


Let’s talk Salsa. Formerly Casa Morales, and now the rebranded signature of the Oh My Joe Salsa Co. brand, Oh My Joe Classico has been a family staple for more than fifty years. Through determination to create a taste that leaves you wanting more, Momma Juanita cooked up a blend of savory tomatoes, ripened jalapenos, and her special mix of spices creating that one of a kind flavor that is in demand across the country.

You’ll find Oh My Joe Classico in kitchens all across America. From the beaches of Honolulu to the shores of Tampa Bay, homes in Bean Town to the Piney Woods of East Texas, Oh My Joe Classico has satisfied the palate of foodies and spice lovers alike. This traditional favorite was also a top award winner at the prestigious Fiery Food International Expo in Dallas, Texas.

We guarantee you’re gonna love this robust, smoky taste of the southwest in every bite. Although classified as a medium heat, it’s gonna wow you! But as Tamale Joe says, “sometimes you gotta ryez-upah!”

Hey everybody, Tamale Joe here, and I’m pumped up and excited to share with you a taste that originated in the majestic mountains of Northern Mexico. It’s a tamale recipe steeped in family tradition. Imagine if you will, ripened corn plucked from the stalk which is embedded in th dark, nutrient-rich earth of the Sierra Madres, shucked and ground into meal, before finally being prepped and kneaded into a masa all by the strong ninety-plus year old hands of my grandmother, Doña Casi. Spread, filled, and wrapped into a dried corn husk, Doña Casi blesses each tamale with love then steams to perfection. It’s that same traditional work ethic, love, and passion in each of our tamales that I’m now happy to share with you at Tamale Joe’s. There’s no doubt in my mind you’re gonna enjoy every bite. Gotta Getcha Some!
