Becerra's Tex-Mex true to our Mexican-Tejano Heritage

Becerra Brand of Tex-Mex Tamales began in 2012 in University Park, Texas; to continue the legacy of our Tejano heritage. In 1963, my maternal grandparents Bacilio & Candida Becerra originated Becerra’s Tortillas in Bryan, and shortly thereafter, EL Zarape Mexican Restaurant in College Station, Texas, just east of the Texas A&M University campus. Where, as a kid, I learned tamale & tortilla production of raw corn (nixtamalization), nixtamalized masa, and at that time, pork head tamales into finished product. In addition, I learned food production & restaurant operations. Encompassing how to make numerous other traditional Tex-Mex dishes like menudo, chile, carne guisada, arroz con pollo, breakfast tacos, various sauces, enchiladas, and the ever-popular crispy, soft tacos, and Texas smoked brisket. After perfecting a few recipes, we began with one salsa in 2012. We have garnered 1st place and 3rd place in Judge's Selection in Texas' largest hot sauce festival - The Austin Chronicle's Hot Sauce Festival. We are also an anchor vendor at The Saint Michael's Farmers Market in University Park, Dallas where we offer our products direct to consumers and have participated for 12 years. We now produce three bottled salsas: a signature SERRANO BOSS SAUCE and 7 different handmade specialty tamales. Becerra's Tex-Mex Tamales prides itself on being a high-quality small-batch operation with our primary focus on quality with high-quality cuts of beef, poultry, pork, vegetables, and regional Tex-Mex seasonings. Becerra's Tex-Mex Tamales strives to provide you with the absolute best in every tamale and salsa we produce. Try our handmade products and you’ll experience why Becerra's Tex-Mex Tamales is Dallas' small-batch Tamale & Salsa experts.

How to reheat our tamales

What we recommend: a stovetop steam pot, Instant Pot or equivalent, fill the pot with 2 to 3 cups of water (depending on the depth and capacity of the pot), 2 to 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil, or olive oil. Fire up the stove to bring the water to a boil to create steam. Once the water is steaming, place the frozen or refrigerated tamales in the basket. In a separate small stockpot, combine 2 cups of water and 1 tablespoon of cooking oil and bring to a medium heat temperature while the steam pot is heating up. Use this water to ladle over the tamales while they are steaming. The corn husk will absorb the water and keep the masa soft. The time needed to reheat will vary, use your best judgment. Check them often to reach the desired readiness. Remove and enjoy with your favorite Becerra's Tex-Mex Salsa & cold beverage!

Testimonials

Absolutely delicious are these Tex-Mex Tamales. Plenty of tasty meat or seafood wrapped in their fluffy masa. "Mesquite Smoked BBQ" being my personal favorite.

Jennifer Y.

These tamales are AMAZING! I especially love the Cream Cheese Jalapeno and the Smoked BBQ ones. We tried mild salsa and the Serrano BBQ Sauce that they also sell, both paired awesomely with the tamales. 100% will be ordering more.

None better. Bottom line. I am from San Antonio and I can say I have never had a better tamale. The BBQ brisket is out of this world. I love the Cream Cheese and Jalapeno. The Gulf Coast Shrimp & Crab is very unique and tasty. The quality of the tamales and salsas is second to none!
