NH Mexican Food: It’s Almost Tamale Season

When the temperature starts to drop, many know it as the perfect time to warm up with tamales. If you’re unfamiliar with or have yet to try one, let us share our appreciation for tamales and what makes them so special! If you’ve been looking for authentic Mexican food in NH, you’ve come to the right place.   

What Is a Tamale?

  Tamales are a traditional Mexican cuisine made from corn dough that’s steamed inside a corn husk or banana leaf. They can be packed with different types of fillings like meats, beans, vegetables, cheeses, and even fruit. Tamales can be made savory or sweet, making them such a versatile food among many! The best way to eat a tamale is first to unwrap the outside layer (corn husk or banana leaf). This is the part you don’t want to consume. Next, add toppings of your choice like salsa, cotija cheese, mole sauce, or anything else you desire that pairs well. You can either eat the tamale with your hands or a fork, the choice is up to you!  

What Makes This Dish So Special

Tamales can be consumed year round but they’re especially popular around the holiday season. For many Mexican and Mexican American families, tamales represent tradition, family, and heritage. Though it’s a time-consuming dish to create, many families enjoy bonding over making them as it brings all the generations together.  

Where to Find Tamales on Our Menu

Our tamales at Don Ramon are typically filled with meat and then topped with beef, cheese, and sauce. You can find them in a few areas on our menu like our combination dinners. You can pair them with two additional things like a burrito, taco, tostada, enchilada, chile relleno, and rice and beans. Or you can order tamales individually as a side dish!
