Calling all tamale lovers — you know who you are! 😉
While you’ve already seen the massive Pork Tamale at this year’s Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure, we’ve got ANOTHER tamale for you to try! You can only find this delicious goodie at the Festival Cart, so let’s head there now!
The Festival Cart this year is bringing a Shredded Beef and Potato Tamale and the Sweet Guava and Cheese Empanada to the party!
Here he is, all wrapped up like a beautiful tamale Christmas present! Boy — we’d love to see a pile of these underneath our Christmas tree this year!
Opening the paper wrapper reveals the golden corn husk — and all the deliciousness it contains!
For us, the masa had the perfect tamale texture. It was warm and moist, but firm enough to hold together.
And the shredded beef and potatoes were tossed in a tasty salsa roja which had just a slight kick to it. Initially, we didn’t get any heat from it, but the spice crept up fast!
We loved Shredded Beef and Potato Tamale and would definitely get this again. It’s a perfect quick bite that fills you up! Our only complaint was that we wish it had a bit more filling!
The Shredded Beef and Potato Tamale costs $5.50 and is Sip and Savor eligible. If you’re looking for even MORE tamales, don’t forget to swing by Merry Mashups for their Turkey & Stuffing Tamale With Cranberry Relish — it’s a returning classic that made our Best of the Fest last year!
