Mail Order Tamales recommendation?

Hi Everyone,

Since my Mom loves to TRAVEL to the southwest, I would like to send her some tamales as a X-mas gift...but am stumped about online ordering. Hard to say which companies are good, and which companies are just ripping me off with $30 shipping and handling for $10 worth of tamales.

Any recommendations?

Try Bueno Foods or Albuquerque Tortilla Company.

Or I could send you the tamales I made a couple of weeks ago - they would cost more, but the shipping would be less... ;-)

I love these tamales - they are a litle more modern in ingredients, but still d-lish.

I've sent El Cholo's tamales to fussy tamale eaters, and they loved them. It's a great restaurant in So. Cal, check it out at However....I remember shipping being A LOT of money. I think when you're paying for the special packing and dry ice overnight rush shipping, it just costs a lot.
