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.

Hi I’m Stuart., amateur home cook and professional food writer.  You can find my writing at places like The Salt Lake Tribune and Gastronomic SLC, which I founded more than a decade ago.  As well as writing extensively about restaurants, I’m endlessly curious about that product on the shelf. Is it any good I wonder? If you’re like me, wonder no more.
