The Meal Deal: Tamales + Chili + Rice for 12

Texas Tamale Company ships its famous tamales, chili, and rice nationwide on Goldbelly! We bet there are few gifts that are better (and more original) than a tamale party in a box. This impeccably packaged box includes a handmade tamale feast for 12, homestyle chili and rice included. 36 tamale flavors will arrive individually wrapped in Texas Tamale Signature Bags, proving the age-old saying: “It ain’t a party until the tamales arrive” (yes, we swear, that’s something people say all the time). Texas Tamale Company’s tamales are gluten free.

Houston’s Texas Tamale Company is famous for its Tex-Mex tamale: a husky, lard-free, and gluten-free tamale filled with beef or chicken and steamed in masa (ground-corn dough). Founded as a Houston tamale pushcart by a husband and wife in 1985, Texas Tamale Company is now owned by Shirley Bailey. What started as a small business shipping “survival kits” of tamales, chili, queso, and sauces to displaced Texans has now become a beloved Texas institution.

Tamale Party Pack - it was easy to order. The food was delivered quickly and the mapping of the delivery was wonderful. I knew where the food was throughout the delivery process. Once it arrived, my family said the food was delicious.

we loved these-- there wasn't a lot of cornmeal so you could taste the chicken...packed nice- we were able to eat some right away and put some in the freezer.... will get these again!
LARAE C. - Spring Valley, IL
Easy to order. Food delivered when promised and packed well. As for the Tamales they were the hit of the party. They are unusual in that they are rolled thin but the flavor of each kind was great. The cost versus the work of making tamales (I live in A CA so I know ) makes this product not only on my repeat order list but several other party goers as well.
Kathy T. - San Diego, CA
