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 chiles. Gluten and trans-fat free, they're fully cooked. Just steam or microwave to enjoy a real Tex-Mex treat in minutes.

  • 36 tamales (18 oz. total); serves 6.
  • Shipped chilled.
  • Made in USA.

  • Rated 1 out of 5 by from do not order these inedible tamales Received my tamales order today. They are inedible. The masa is so hard it can break teeth. They are mostly masa with very little of the bland pureed filling. These should be taken off the market.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very small and poorly made I ordered these tamales and thought I was getting the same supplier as last year, but no dice. A dozen of these tamales would be lucky to serve 3 people. The flavor is not bad, but they are so small, and the wrapper is open on one end so you must be very careful when handling them because they fall apart easily. The tamales from the last year and before were significantly better, larger, more flavorful and much much better made. I will not be ordering these again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tamales a HIT at family Christmas Party! Everyone really enjoyed the tamales and were surprised to hear they came from a catalog purchase. I live in Southern California and the tamales were as fresh coming from Texas as if purchased here locally. I HIGHLY recommend these tamales but it should be clearly written that these tamales are appetizer sized (finger-food) rather than full sized. The advertisement should be more concise or show a photo of their actual size to avoid under ordering.
