I am a huge fan of Mexican food. When I was pregnant with Miss Stalin I craved it on a daily basis. As a result, she loves all things spicy. Funny how that works.
Then I heard about Del Real Foods and I just knew I had to give them a try. I have a couple of friends who went on and on about how amazing they are. Add to it they are convenient and I really wanted to try them.
Then this showed up at my door and I was beyond excited. Salsa, Chili Verde, and tamales, oh my!
I cannot find the word to tell you how wonderful everything was. It was all so incredible.
Our family traditions were first cultivated in a small town in the heart of Mexico. For generations the Cardenas family lived and thrived in the rich culture of central Mexico, but in 1970 they moved to the United States in search of a better future. They brought with them their love for authentic Mexican cuisine. Though the family made many sacrifices when they fist arrived, they were able to take comfort in the traditions that came with them from Mexico; most important of which was their traditional and authentic style of cooking and eating together.
Based in Mira Loma, California, our USDA-approved cooking facility is efficient, competitive and maintains extremely high-quality standards. We continue to focus on creating great tasting, authentic Mexican meals that are safe and healthier, with no preservatives, just the way our family has done for generations. We distribute our delicious cuisine to nearly all food markets including restaurants, grocery store delis, club stores and retail stores. We look forward to becoming a part of your home and your traditions soon.
The tamales were one of our favorites. We were able to try both chicken and pork tamales and they were amazing. They even came in the corn husks. One of the best parts of these is that they were so easy to make. Just cover with a damp paper towel and heat up in the microwave. Easy and so good.
My absolute favorite was the Pollo Asado. It is simply grilled chicken seasoned with a traditional blend of spices and marinated in a zesty citrus blend. We heated it up and made soft tacos with it. I have never had a more flavorful piece of chicken. I admit I was a little sad when it was all gone.
The kids and I even had the Chili Verde today for lunch. It is pork that is simmered in a zesty tomatillo and chili pepper sauce. The end result is nothing short of flavorful with just the perfect amount of kick.
