Amy’s Cheese Tamale Verde Review

Amy's Cheese Tamale Verde

We had mixed feelings when we eyed Amy’s Tamale Verde with Cheese. The tamale looked and smelled great; we knew we would like it from the moment we laid eyes on it. The rice and beans, however, looked a little sub-par. We were worried that half of this dish would go to waste.

The rice definitely doesn’t compare to the creamy, cheesy flavor of the tamale. That stated, it’s better than it looks. While the rice looks very dry in the picture below, stirring it takes┬ácare of that problem. It’s well seasoned, and it pairs nicely with the verde sauce.

Of course, the tamale is still the standout of the dish. We love the melted Monterrey jack cheese, and the organic tomatillos have a terrifically tart flavor. While the tamale is reasonably large, we couldn’t help but feel that there wasn’t enough of it. We devoured it in just a few bites.

If you’re watching what you eat, you should look carefully at this label before digging in. There are two full teaspoons of sugar per serving, and this dish is heavy on both fat and sodium. That said, it contains some healthy ingredients as well. The organic rice and vegetables are packed full of nutrients, and this contains plenty of vitamin C.

This isn’t Amy’s healthiest dish, but it’s very tasty. You might not want to eat this every day of the week, but it definitely makes for a nice lunchtime treat. We loved this tamale, and we’re definitely tempted to try it again.
