Amy’s Tamale Verde and Amy’s Tamale Roasted Vegetables are two tasty non-dairy and gluten-free meals perfect when you crave a little Mexican fiesta in your mouth.
While on the Amy Kitchen Diet, I was extremely pleased with the variety of gluten-free dinners available. Amy’s is known for having some of the best vegetarian frozen meals.
I’ve always loved the soft, real corn tamales I’ve had at authentic Mexican restaurants. For my Amy’s Kitchen Tamale Verde and Tamale Roasted Vegetables review, I wondered whether Amy’s would be as good.
I can officially say Amy’s has some of the best gluten-free and dairy-free frozen meals in addition to the best vegetarian frozen meals. The Amy’s tamales are flavorful and filling.
Under the gluten-free and dairy-free category, Amy’s also makes a rice mac and “cheese” and a wheat and dairy-free chocolate cake. I’m a fan of Amy’s bean and rice burritos.
Here are five important points to know about the Amy’s non-dairy, gluten-free tamales:
No. 1: The Amy’s Tamale Roasted Vegetables is made with organic black beans, corn masa and tomatoes. The one generous-size tamale comes with a side of black beans. The tamales is smothered in a delicious tomato-based sauce. I could taste a hint of lime. The tamale is filled with vegetables such as onions, bell peppers, zucchini and corn.
No. 2: The Amy’s Tamale Verde is served with a side of Spanish rice made with organic brown rice. The tamale is filled with black beans, zucchini, corn, bell peppers, and smothered in a green “verde” sauce. With this variety, I tasted fire roasted and jalapeno peppers, but it was not too hot.
No. 3: To make the tamales, Amy’s takes masa, which is ground and cooked corn. The tamales truly melt in your mouth which reminds me of restaurant-quality tamales.
No. 4: The Amy’s tamales also contain no MSG or the GMOS/ bioengineered ingredients.
No. 5: The Amy’s Tamale Verde had 330 calories, 10 grams of fat and 8 grams of fiber; the Amy’s Tamale roasted vegetables has 280 calories, 7 grams of fat and 8 grams of fiber. They have between 4 and 6 grams of sugar and between 7 and 9 grams of protein.
If you are not on a dairy-free diet, feel free to sprinkle cheddar cheese on top of the gluten-free Amy’s Kitchen tamales. They are perfect for people who are gluten intolerant or lactose intolerant as well as people who just want to lose weight or be healthy.
I added my own garnish of Greek yogurt, salsa and avocado slices when doing the Amy’s Kitchen Tamale Verde and Tamale roasted vegetable review. If you want a really “hot tamale” just add your own fire hot salsa to the Amy’s tamales.
