Green Corn Tamale

Green corn tamales get their name because they traditionally are wrapped in fresh corn husks rather than dried. One such tamale and a beef taco make a nice, low-cost meal at Lerua's.

With the husk peeled back, I excavated into the moist corn masa to reveal the green chile and cheese laced through it.

The salsa that comes with chips is a celebration of chile flavor: not too hot, but intensely verdant.

It's obscured by all the trimmings, but there is plenty of beef in this carne seca taco, and its flavor is walloping.

This is one jumbo chile relleno -- so filled and so smothered that the chile itself is hard to taste.

Lerua's has been a Tucson fixture since the early days of Arizona statehood.
