Are your tamales gluten-free?

Yes!  our tamales are gluten-free; made with organic masa and natural ingredients.

Why do you sell your tamales in half-dozens?

The size of our tamales is larger than most of the tamales you will find at the grocery store or at the local Mexican-food restaurants. One half-dozen of our tamales weighs over 2 lbs. Because of their size, we recommend 1-2 tamales per adult and 1 per child. A half-dozen provides the perfect quantity of tamales for a family of four (2 adults and 2 children). Please contact us if you need more information about this.

Do you sell your tamales frozen?

We do not freeze our tamales. Our tamales are freshly made, and we give our customers the choice to warm them up and eat them the same day or to freeze for later. They freeze really well!!

How long can I keep the tamales in the refrigerator?

We recommend to keep them in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. After that time, go ahead and freeze them. But if you know you are not going to eat them soon, freeze them right away.

How should I warm up the tamales?

Please refer to the Instructions section for some options and tips on how to warm up the tamales.

Are your tamales spicy?

Besides the Cheese & Jalapeno and the Spicy Black Bean tamales, all of our other tamales are not spicy. They have good flavor, and you can always add some spicy sauce. If you want us to make your tamales spicy, please let us know and we can custom make them for you.
