La Preferida Beef Tamale, 15 Ounce — 12 per case. shelf life 990 days
- Tamale Beef Can (Pack of 12)
Sauce is Pretty Greasy
I ordered this brand because I like to have some on hand for quick lunches or late night snacks and these were priced considerably less than Hormel Beef Tamales, In Chili Sauce, 15-Ounce Units (Pack of 12) (my usual brand). The tamales themselves tasted fine to me, maybe not quite as spicy as Hormel but still good. I did not like all the grease though floating around on the plate from the sauce. The tamales didn’t taste particularly greasy but I really did not like the sauce – gross. I’ll save the other 11 cans in our emergency food supply and most likely just discard the sauce and eat the tamales only..Not a bad product if you discount the greasy sauce but I’ll be sticking with Hormel for future purchases – the tamales taste good to me and the sauce is not nearly as greasy.
Update – I just checked again and Hormel Tamales are available again through Subscribe and Save AND they are several dollars less expensive than La Preferida. I just signed up. LOL
