Traditional Beef Tamales


Our number 1 seller since we opened back in 1999. Shredded beef slow simmered in our authentic Mole’ sauce surronded in tender masa and wrapped in corn husks. In keeping with true Mexican tradition, we do everything the old fashioned way by fire roasting Ancho and Guajillo chilis and blend that with vine ripened tomatoes and distinct spices to make our Mole’ rich and full of flavor.

My spouse and I received our order as a gift. We were very happy to have it, as it gave us a sweet reminder of back home for our anniversary.

These tamales were just terrific. Much better than most restaurants and so simple to prepare. Truly fresh and homemade tasting. We thought the verde sauce was great and then we tried the bomb mole - will reorder again and again.
