We make our tamales from fresh
ingredients. We always use organic masa
made from non-GMO corn, and our meat is
humanely raised with no added hormones
or antibiotics. Our salsas, broths and
fillings are made from scratch using fresh
produce that is chemical-free,
pesticide-free, and grown locally whenever
possible. We do not use additives or
preservatives of any kind.
|Chicken in Green Sauce
Tender, shredded, organic free-range chicken
in a flavorful homemade tomatillo salsa. Try it
with a dollop of our organic sour cream.
|Buying organic and local means that we take advantage of the freshest seasonal produce
our local farmers have to offer. Our commitment to making our tamales using the best
ingredients also means that not all tamales will always be available.

|Sweet (but not too sweet) Tamales
Baked yam and butternut squash masa
with a sweet red bean filling. It's kinda like
a sweet-and-salty medley. Pour yourself
some hot apple cider, put on your fuzzy
slippers, and cozy on up to the fire―this
tamale is pure comfort food.
|Blue Corn Jalapeño & Cheese
Fresh chopped jalapeños delicately sautéed
in olive oil with garlic and onions; paired with a
classic Monterey Jack cheese and presented
in a tasty blue corn masa. We remove the
seeds and spines from the jalapeños so you
get the flavor without the heat.
|PREPARATION / WARMING TIPS
|Tamales can be frozen after they’re cooked and will last for months in your freezer if you
double-bag them to prevent freezer burn. If refrigerating them, eat them within 7 days.
|May contain organic brown sugar that is NOT processed through bone char.
|NO LARD, NO CORN OIL, NO CANOLA OIL, NO GLUTEN, NO TRANS FAT
Folks who enjoy our tamales needn’t worry about lard, nor should you be concerned about
scientific reports that corn oil becomes toxic when heated, because we don’t use lard, corn
oil, nor canola oil, which is known to cause digestive problems in some people. Our tamales
are naturally gluten-free. We use only organic, non-hydrogenated fat sources.
|Our tamales are flavorful but not overly spicy.
(If you like spicy, throw some of our housemade "nearganic" salsa on 'em!)
