Tamales with Green Chili Sauce #SundaySupper


Today is Mexican Independence Day!  I am super excited to see all the #SundaySupper recipes today.   I am a huge fan of Mexican food, so I can’t wait to go through the 50+ recipes below.  This group is full of some amazing talent, so I know you will be blown away too.

I kind of cheated here.  I didn’t make the tamales.  They are on my list of things to try one day, but just haven’t gotten there yet.  We have a few really great stands at our farmers market that sell tamales, salsas, hot sauces, and more.  We sampled tamales at one stand, and immediately picked up some to bring home.  Word to the wise…when the Mexican woman tells you they are spicy, you might want to listen.

Also at the farmers market they have fresh roasted hatch green chilis!  I have never had a hatch chili pepper before moving to Colorado, but I have read a lot about them and see them in lots of recipes.  I decided to try them in a green chili sauce to serve over our tamales.  Again, when they say hot, they mean it!  You don’t have to use hatch chili’s for this.  I think jalapenos, poblanos, anaheims, and many more would work well too.

  1. Tamales are on my list of need to makes as well but it has just never happened. I am sure I will get there eventually but in the mean while I love this green chili sauce.

  2. Green chili sauce is amazing – I’ve never tried making it at home though; thanks for sharing your recipe!

  3. Your salsa verde looks amazing! Come over! We’ll have a tamale baking party!

  4. That´s a nice green chili sauce you made! I never made tamales either, but I like your side of rice. Happy sunday!

  7. Your green salsa looks fantastic!

  8. Wow, that looks great!! Can’t wait to try it!!

  9. Looks good. I’ve never made a green chili sauce without tomatillos. Will have to give your version a try.

  10. WOW – that green chili sauce is to die for! Need to make very soon. Pinning!!!

  11. I’m here in the Springs and am dying for some tamales. Where did you get yours?? The few farmer’s markets I’ve been to have just had produce.

    • I am in Fort Collins, and we have a few different farmer’s markets and they all have them. Apparently you need to come for a visit :)

      • I should! I haven’t gone to a market in a while though. I was hoping for more fruit choices but I guess that’s not common in Colorado? I’m originally from California.

        • We don’t have a ton of fruit – peaches, apples, melon, and berries mainly. I am from the midwest, so I am not used to huge, great farmers markets.

  12. I like a green chili sauce better than a lot of the red picante or salsas. It is great on fish tacos too.

  13. I tried Tamales once and I didn’t like them. :/ But this chili sauce is a different story…I’d love to try it!

  14. I’m very jealous of your farmers’ market! I’ve only made green chili sauce with tomatillos – need to try your version.

  15. Oooh, you guys have me craving Mexican food in a big way! Lovin’ the Mexican theme for #SundaySupper. Great job on the tamales and green chile sauce, Erin!

  16. I want to try making tamales too someday. I’ve never seen them at a farmers market, but maybe I need to keep my eyes peeled. The green chili sauce sounds fantastic.

  17. I’ve eaten many green chile sauces, but never made one. You’ve inspired me once again! Happy #Sunday Supper, Erin!

  20. You’re so right about the amazing talent in the #SundaySupper group. I almost don’t need to look at cooking magazines anymore! I’ve always wanted to green chili sauce but have never tried. Yours looks so fresh and light. I must try it!

  23. I have never made a tamale. Yous tooks pretty easy. I am bookmarking this for later.

  24. We make tamales every year around Christmas..but hey, I don’t blame you for eating the handmade (by someone else) ones…I do it often, too. These look delicious, as does your salsa!

  25. This looks like a Winner Winner Mexican Independence Day Dinner!! Looks great. I have never made a tamale… you’re tempting me to try. :)

  26. This Sunday Supper was meant for me. So many good Mexican restaurants. I am dying to get my hands on Hatch chilies. Maybe this just don’t make it to the east coast? This sauce looks so super good. I can think of so many uses.

  27. You could make this Tamales for me any day! They look amazing and your photography is just stunning!
