Are Chapparo's Pork Tamales any good?

Yes! These are great tamales when you need a quick meal solution or a fast snack. Cooking up in just a few minutes the microwave, they’re delicious if not slightly unhealthy.

You can see our bigger review of Chapparo’s Tamales here – specifically the beef variety. I’d say the beef tamales are ever so slightly better taste wise, the beef being a little richer and more full flavored. Otherwise these are very solid tamales, refer to our other review for full details.

What’s a fair price?

So far I’ve only found these at Walmart locations for $6.37. A $1.30 per tamale seems like a perfectly fair price for the quality.

  1. I’m sorry but these so called tamales are disgusting. The masa has no flavor and is so drie. I was eating it and the masa made me choke it was so dry. I’m surprised you even got this product into the store. I’m a white woman married to a Mexican and I make the bomb tamales. Sorry but it’s nothing I would ever by again. If your so desperate to want a tamale. Wait.
