Sadness. I looked for these when I went to Joe's this afternoon. I found them and unfortunately took a look at the nutrition information before putting the three packages into the cart. I just couldn't justify the amount of fat for one tamale. Stupid health-conscious conscience.
At TJ's today I sampled some of their tamales with green chilis and cheese. Normally I'd steer clear of pre packaged *stuff* but these were really good, so I bought some. The filling is sort of bland, but the masa is light and airy and reminded me of the tamales I grew up with! Some great salsa with a dollop of crema will liven them up perfectly. 4 for 3.99 in the refrigerated section
I eat those all the time. They're one of the only frozen pre-made things I buy.
These are fresh, not frozen. It's a fairly new product, I think they've had them for around 5-6 months. They still carry the frozen, but these are much better!
But I did buy some other favorites - the aioli garlic mustard sauce and a big container of greek-style plain yogurt. And cheap Airborne tablets, too!
Yeah I know, a good tamale has fat period. It's one of those foods you just need to enjoy once in a while regardless. If there was a posted sign with fat content at the Salvadore Molly's booth at the F.M. the line would probably be shorter. Close your eyes and eat em! A low fat tamale would rival a door stop.
