Our Tamales

We love this time of year. This is where Vegos really thrives, a time where tradition and the unfamiliar meet. Tamales have become part of the Vegos culture and it is a language we speak to communicate about happy times with family and friends. 

Our tamales are stuffed with our classic red chile and sautéed jackfruit. We're not talking about that sweet jackfruit, we use that young green jackfruit. Perfect for creating that shredded texture. We marry these two items in a large pan and let it sit for a low simmer. Infusing all the flavors together. However, a good tamale's foundation is the masa, and we have just the right combination. We keep it simple with our masa, only using 6 ingredients. No artifical flavors, colors, or dyes. Each tamale is hand rolled by a Vegos team member and is surely gonna make your meal special.
