“Everybody loves funky fair food! At the fair this year we have Pickled Tamale Bites. So, it's pickles and cheese inside tamale masa in a little ball and then you also have nacho cheese on the side to dip in it. It's really good,” said Brianda Martinez, Arizona State Fair’s marketing director, to ABC15 in an interview.
The Phoenix show is part of her "MI CASA, TU CASA" tour, her first headlining tour, which will be stopping in 16 cities across the country.
