Cuban Food Tamales

Tamal Cuba

The Tamal is a Cuban favorite – You’ll see these odd corn leaf wrapped meals for sale all over our country. Inside is a mixture of milled corn, red pepper, garlic (not much) and pork. Some are available with beef but the regular version is with pork rind. Cuban Tamales are quick meals popular with workers at lunch time. Often one or two will accompany a rice dish are even with Frijoles (black beans). They’re sold on street corners for around 0.25 USD cents (5 cuban pesos) each. They’re very filling so don’t buy too many!
