Quick and Easy Tamales Ideas for Back-to-School Season

It’s hard enough for your little ones to go back to school after a long family summer together. Ease your children into the new school year with a delicious tamale that will make them feel like they’re at home. Ditch the soggy ham sandwich and pack a lunch that will credit you the lunch-time hero. Here are some quick and easy food ideas to pair with tamales just in time for back-to-school.

Healthy and Delicious Vegetables/Fruits

It’s important to keep your kids diet healthy and balanced. Try pairing our tamales with 

  • street corn
  • avocados/guacamole
  • Pico de gallo
  • fresh fruit
  • stuffed peppers or
  • a Caesar salad.

You can lightly season the avocado and corn with salt and pepper for a better taste; your picky little eaters will thank you later! This will rid you of unwanted stress of whether or not your children are getting the nutrients they need and give them a scrumptious meal that they will love. 

Fast and Simple Pairings

On a crunch for time? Throw in some ready-made tortilla chips, Mexican rice, pinto beans, or our red or green salsas. We also serve mouth-watering menudo that can be paired with a tamale of your choosing, and fits kindly with any of our refreshing aguas frescas.
