Red Meat-less Tamales
When our tamales come up in a conversation, everyone will likely reveal their favorite being a meat variety like pork, beef or chicken. However, when it comes to lent, most assume that tamales should not be considered because most contain some form of meat. Well, we’re here to tell you that you won’t have to give up our tamales at all! If you’ve taken a look at our online menu, you’ll see that we have seven options that are just as delicious as our meat-filled tamales:
- Bean and jalapeño
- Bean and cheese
- Bean, cheese and jalapeño
- Cream cheese and jalapeño
- Sweet cream cheese
We be that you didn’t know we offered so many red meat-less tamales! During lent, try all seven! This way, you can skip the fish and go for something a bit different.
Over the last decade, vegetarian and vegan lifestyles have grown in popularity in the Rio Grande Valley. Because of this, it’s our responsibility to inform you that the seven, red meat-less options we mentioned above are vegetarian, but not vegan. They don’t contain red meat but aren’t free of animal products. Our tamale masa does contain animal products such as lard and dairy. For those of you who are vegan and feel that you’ll have to give up our delicious treats, you’ll be thrilled to know that we prepare vegan tamales by request! Simply contact us to place your special order.
