Tamales are edible gifts. You unwrap them slowly to reveal something made for you with care and time, something comforting, hearty, and homecooked.
We've never met a tamale we didn't love, and though they require work, it's always well worth it. Click on for a few tasty tamales sin carne, vegetarian tamale recipes we love and hope you will too.
Tamales are a typical offering for Day of the Dead (and general holiday) feasts. These corn tamales are kinda sweet, kinda spicy, but completely amazing. Anaheim chiles balance out the sweet corn and cheddar cheese to make salty sweet bites everyone will love. After the spirits have taken their share, help yourself to the leftovers.
During the holidays, it can be hard to meet everyone's dietary needs while simultaneously putting out delicious dishes. Not with this vegan recipe. With fresh green jalapeño, bright green cilantro, and toasted pine nuts, these festive pockets are packed with flavor that will please the whole family, vegans and non-vegans alike!
