We Love Tamales!

About TML

Tamale My Life, or TML for short, is the Pacific Northwest's premier tamale company. Established in early 2019, TML has been growing steadily thanks to an ever growing and supportive community of tamale lovers. We are a family business providing our delicious cuisine to the corners of the world. We provide catering, popup, pickup, and delivery services. 

 

 

About Our Tamales:

We sell Big Tamales and Tamale Bites. The Tamale Bites are chicken nugget sized appetizers that can be eaten in one or two bites. They're perfect for children and can considered a 'mini tamale'. Our Big Tamales are packed with a large amount of filling for maximum flavor capacity. The have the perfect ratio of filling to masa, so you can enjoy the perfect tamale experience. Our tamales are excellent. It takes a special combination of corn meal, custom made salsa, and specially engineered stuffing to make a TML tamale. 

        Pre-Steam TML Tamales:

Our pre-steam and frozen TML tamales come ready to be placed into any steamer. All you'll have to do is place them vertically into the steaming receptacle for about 90 minutes, and they'll be ready to serve!

        Hot and Super Fresh Tamales: 

Our Hot and Super Fresh Tamales come just like that, very hot and super fresh. You can purchase these through our Pop Ups or by pre-ordering online for pick up or delivery to your home or business.

Our Vision and Timeline

We're a small team with a big vision, and we believe it's important for you to know our plan and how big we want to take it. You'll see our small business grow right before your very eyes. If you love what we do, you'll help us grow our business with every purchase you make. Here's our plan to grow: 

  • Phase 1: Weekend deliveries and Pick Up Pop Up Tamale Shop
We're a small team with limited resources, but we believe wholeheartedly in what we do. That's why we'll commit to delivering your goods every weekend. With your help, we'll continue to make deliveries weekly where we'll be able to grow to our next phase in the project. 
Milestone achieved: July 2019

 

  • Phase 2: Weekday deliveries and more local neighborhood pickup locations
We would love to start deliveries to your home during the weekdays. Tamales are perfect for a meal right after a long day of work. We're going to need to work with some local shops in your neighborhood that can carry our product in their restaurant, bar, or store. Please help us out! Do you know someone who would be interested in carrying our tamales?
Milestone Achieved: November 2019

 

  • Phase 3: Catering & Events

So you like the Tamales? Why not help us grow by having us at your event? You love our product already, so what I'm saying is why not share it with all your friends? Friends don't let friends not know who makes the best tamales!

Milestone achieved: October 2019

  • Phase 4: Restaurants & Retail stores

Work with a healthy amount of companies to enhance our distribution channel and provide a sustainable amount of tamales to our local Seattle neighborhoods. 

Milestone expected to be completed August 2020

  • Phase 5: Brick and Mortar TML & Associated Cafe 
There's more specialties we would like to bring to you. As we build upon what you like, we'll introduce specialties that complement your existing tamale knowledge and experience. This would be a great start to having a central location for you to pick up all your important Mexican specialities.
