Since the early 1980s, Texas Tamale in Houston has been making gourmet, lard-free tamales, combining smooth masa with savory fillings, and wrapping them in cornhusks. The company started in a home kitchen, branched out to a street cart and ultimately opened its own popular deli. These beef tamales have the perfect balance of soft masa and spiced tender beef with a bit of kick from piquant chilies. Gluten- and trans fat-free, they’re fully cooked. Just steam or microwave to enjoy a real Tex-Mex treat in minutes.
