We’ve got great Tamales and all of the answers to help you enjoy them!
Absolutely! Our wide variety of tamales means we have something for everyone -– pork, chicken, veggie, cheese and poblano and sweet tamales. The menu is on our website www.thetamalekitchen.org/shop.
As many as you want! Our tamales come in orders of a half-dozen and one dozen units. Our cheese and poblano tamales are sold in pairs.
Our tamales can come to you two ways.
You can pick up the tamales at our kitchen, or we can deliver them to you. There is a $10 delivery charge with every order. Our delivery area is big – a 30 mile radius from our kitchen.
Our kitchen is located at 600 E. Armour Blvd. in Kansas City. It is a production kitchen, strictly for cooking and picking up tamales. It is not a retail space. We are not a restaurant.
We are cooking up tamales almost every day in our kitchen. But we take orders any time the mood strikes our customers through our website www.thetamalekitchen.org/shop
Deliveries are made twice a week or more depending on our customers’ needs. If the order is for a special occasion or dinner tonight, make a note on the order form and someone will contact you to make it happen.
Yes. Leave us a note on the order form if a specific delivery time or pick up time is needed. We will contact you and do our best to make it happen.
Yes, they are! The masa is made from corn flour, lard, baking powder and salt.
The Tamale Kitchen’s Veggie Tamal is made with pure vegetable shortening; organic vegetable broth; and in-season, sauteed vegetables, such as carrots, onions, green, yellow, red peppers, whole kernel corn, spinach and mushrooms. There are no milk products in the veggie tamal.
So glad you asked because that’s one of our favorites. Dulce means sweet in Spanish and our sweet tamales consist of shredded coconut, crushed pineapple and raisins, flavored with vanilla and cinnamon.
There sure is. We here at The Tamale Kitchen are all about community – changing our community for the better and building a better community. That means we connect with amazing partners for special events throughout the year. Check the events page on our website, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram for even more updates.
We love to cater events – big, small and everything in between. We can bring our tamales, or offer meals through our Tamales and Greens partnership with two outstanding local, women-owned businesses. Does a dinner of two tamales, a serving of greens and cobbler sound good? Please call us at 816-600-3228 for more information.
Yes, we have a food truck! Please contact us if you’re interested in booking our food truck by calling 816-600-3228 or email us email@example.com. We’d love to be there!
Your tamales are frozen fresh and are ready to eat after heating.
We sure do. Place no more than two tamales on a plate to microwave.
Of course we celebrate tamales every day but the official National Tamale Day is March 23.
For so many families, it really isn’t Christmas without tamales. Tamales are a long tradition in Mexico. We have been told that Aztec and Maya civilizations, as well as the Olmec and Toltec before them, used tamales as easily portable food, for hunting trips, and for traveling large distances, as well as supporting their armies. Tamales were also considered sacred, as they were seen as the food of the gods.
