We are excited to announce we now have Central American tamales available!
We’re always working to provide our customers with their favorite foods from back home. Our culinary team has been working hard to perfect this special tamale for those who yearn for the authentic taste of Central America. Now you can find them for the holidays and all year round in the Vallarta Tortilleria.
Central American tamales differ from the traditional Mexican tamales in several ways. You’ll recognize them immediately because they’re wrapped in a banana leaf, instead of a corn husk. The masa itself is a finer grind, which makes for a tamale with more moisture. As for ingredients, you’ll find pork, chicken, potatoes, garbanzo beans, green bell peppers, olives, and authentic spices from Central America.
It’s Tamale Season! Reflecting the diverse Latino tastes and traditions, Vallarta Supermarkets stocks many varieties of tamales and masas (Spanish for corn-based dough), including varying fillings from spicy to sweet, for carnivores or vegetarians, wrapped in a cornhusk or a banana leaf.
