Summary

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. It's been a recipe for success: The company started in a home kitchen, branched out to a street cart and ultimately opened its own popular deli. Their chicken tamales have the perfect balance of soft masa and tender chicken with a bit of a 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 5 out of 5 by from Easy Dinner/Appetizer These are so good. Used to get these sent from Dallas elsewhere for many years but found here. The Texas ones are my favorite. I didn't want lard in it. They are not too spicy but flavorful. Steam them as I always do. Perfect. Add toppings & they are the perfect size for appetizer or have 4 as a dinner portion.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Much smaller than expected... The tamales were OK, but they are really cocktail sized.
