Olè, y’all! It’s tamale time!

I had the pleasure of testing (read: chowing down on) Montana Tamales. I tested all four varieties of Montana Tamale Company’s wares: Buffalo, Beef, Jalapeno Chicken and Green Corn. I also tested their sauce, and let me tell you: Delish!

Let me start by telling you how I prepared these tamales. On the package, it says to either steam them for twenty minutes or microwave them for a couple of minutes. I tried both ways, and my advice? STEAM. It ensures that your tamales will remain moist. The bonus for me? It gave me a chance to get a bit of a corn-husk-scented facial steam while preparing my dinner. Lovely. Also, like all items reviewed here on Pure Zing, these tamales are better than your traditional frozen tamales. They are all natural, gluten-free and contain no artificial colors or flavors. The sauce, a combination of corn flour, red chili powder, salt, garlic and ground cumin, comes dry and is so easy to prepare. The 2.3 ounce package makes enough sauce to cover six tamales entirely (top, bottom and each side). Of course, I am a sauce-a-holic, so…

Since Montana Tamale Company is the home of the Buffalo Tamale, that’s the tamale I’m going to start with. The filling contains shredded buffalo, shredded beef, chili rojo, chili molido, corn starch, garlic powder, salt and cumin. I have to admit: I had never had anything other than beef tamales, so I was excited about trying the buffalo. It was slightly different, but so delicious. I tried it with and without the sauce, and it was great both ways. It helps to know that the buffalo meat used is raised right there in Montana by Montana ranchers…and since it’s shredded; you know it isn’t overly processed. Oh, and, what’s this I hear about buffalo meat having health benefits over beef, such as less fat and cholesterol and higher levels of protein, iron and all the omega and amino acids? Goody!

The masa that surrounds the filling of each tamale is made of stone ground corn flour with a trace of lime, corn oil, corn starch and salt. Each tamale weighs 4.5 ounces (128 grams) and a package contains three. You can buy these by the case, which means you get twenty packages of three. Party time! And please, invite me. I'm ready for more Green Corn Tamales!
