Tamales: A Texas Holiday Tradition

Tamales -and -beans

If time isn't on your side, stop by your local Fiesta Mart and pick up enough tamales for the entire family. In fact, you can buy extra and freeze them to use later on. We offer Pork and Chicken Tamales for the Holidays in various packs. Tamales are a traditional meal by themselves along with rice and beans, or you can serve them as an addition to your holiday dinner. Our tamales are fully cooked; all you do is just heat and serve. The Chicken and Pork Tamales are wrapped in Authentic Corn Husks using only fresh, lean Chicken or Pork Shoulder.

Cooking Instructions: Steam in a vegetable pot for 10-15 minutes or until soft. OR Wrapped in a paper towel and placed in the Microwave for one to two minutes or until soft. Our tamales are available in 1/2-, 1- and 3-dozen packs.

What do You Serve with Tamales?

Beans, of course! Fiesta Mart is the first supermarket to offer refrigerated refried beans in the US (Pinto and Mayacoba). The Pinto beans used in the Fiesta brand come mainly from Colorado where the best Pinto beans are grown. The Mayacoba beans, also known as Canary and Peruvian beans, come mainly from the State of Sinaloa in Northwestern Mexico. They were named after a small village in Mexico where this new version of an old Inca bean was developed. These beans are grown close to the coast of the Sea of Cortez. People in Mexico, Peru and Ecuador have enjoyed Mayacoba beans for centuries. Now you can enjoy this buttery and tender taste at your local Fiesta Mart.
