Melissa's Tamale Kits are bigger and better! Each tamale kit contains the main ingredients you need to make delicious tamales in just minutes! We have improved the kit to make your tamales better than ever; the corn husks are larger to make it easier to fill and fold; we have made the ready-to-use corn meal masa tastier than before and our new packaging has a clear, easy to read recipe on the back of the package for simple preparation instructions. All you do is add water to the dried corn masa mix, spread the mix onto the larger improved corn husks (which have already been cleaned and soaked) and add the filling of your choice! You will have your tamales prepared in about 15 minutes per dozen. Then, place them in a steamer pot for about 45 minutes and you have delicious HOME MADE tamales in about one hour!! You will be thrilled at how authentic and delicious they are!

I just made my first batch of tamales with shredded chicken for a Cinco de Mayo party. This is one of the easiest and quickest dishes I have ever made! When asked for the recipe, I will tell everyone I used your amazing product.
I wanted to share how easy and wonderful tasting the tamale kit is. I made them for a family gathering and no one believed that I made them. They tasted so authentic, the instructions were easy to follow and I loved that everything (minus the meat) was all bundled in one kit. Thank you for making me look like a better cook!!
