Tamaleras - Uncle Julio's Style!

While we’re used to our Southern holiday fixings with stuffing, green bean casserole, Grandma’s bourbon sweet potatoes and cookies for Santa, there is a world of holiday tradition out there worth exploring!

Recently, we learned that Mexico has a holiday dish tradition, where families prepare huge batches of tasty filled tamales in celebratory get-togethers called “tamaleras”, so they’ll have plenty to last through the holidays.

While I truly love the idea of this gathering, speaking from the experience of someone who has tried to make tamales in her own kitchen, I’m so happy we have Uncle Julio’s in town to make it easy for us to adopt this easy holiday meal in our own households!

Whether you choose their classic pork tamales with salsa carne, chicken tamales with tomatillo sauce or vegetable tamales served with Cotija cheese and spicy sour cream, you can enjoy them in the party atmosphere at Uncle Julio’s, or order large quantities of the savories to freeze for later use during the holidays.

Resourceful and delicious!
