Tamales de Queso con Rajas

Cheese & Green Chile Tamales

Our Cheese & Green Chile Tamales are traditionally made by hand, like it’s been done for generations. Soft and moist masa, Monterey Jack cheese, fire roasted green chilies are then wrapped in cornhusks to preserve the delicious flavor and texture of our masa. And while making tamales by hand can be a long process, all you have to do to enjoy a taste of authentic Mexico is open the package, heat and eat. Serve our Cheese & Green Chile Tamales as an entrée or as a side dish or appetizer.
