Amy’s Tamales and Enchiladas are made for Dairy-Free Frozen Dinners

0

One of my favorite brands for convenience is Amy’s. They are a vegetarian frozen food company that focuses on organics and ingredients you can pronounce. They have a huge assortment of frozen entrees, and each category has several vegan offerings. In fact, I was able to dedicate an entire post to cheesy dairy-free Amy’s frozen entrees (there are nine!). But this post is all about the vegan Amy’s Tamales & Enchiladas.

Excellent Tamale

4.0 rating
August 2, 2020

I tried the Roasted Vegetable Tamale. To make it a bit more satiating, I diced half an avocado and sprinkled it atop the beans once ready. I was pleasantly surprised with how the tamale turned out. It looked just like the package. But the black beans, not so much. I went with the “looks aren’t everything” theory and dove in.
The tamale was generously sized with a thick layer of masa that was surprisingly light and fluffy. Overall, the tamale was tame, as far as Mexican food goes. There was a light spicy kick that added interest and flavor, but in no way threatened to send me running for water. The filling was unlike any other I have tried. It was definitely Cal-Mex-style with sizable chunks of veggies throughout. Honestly, this tamale tasted “fresher” than most.
The black beans were done in a refried-style, but the overall texture was good. They were good filler for the entree, but lacked pizzazz. Next time I would stir in some spices, or in a pinch just a sprinkle of hot sauce should do.
