About Us

Every week I receive compliments from customers that our tamales are the best they’ve ever tasted, and that they look forward to trying the other flavors. Our tamales are authentically hand-made with flavorful chili’s and traditional seasoning. I use the best and freshest ingredients, and use experienced cooking methods to bring the best tamales to you and your loved ones.

My parents, hail from El Paso Texas, and I started making tamales when I was four years old. I have fond memories of my mother pulling a chair up to the kitchen counter and showing us how to make tamales and tortillas together. This is where I learned many of the recipes that I use in these tamales.

Our Story

Due to the economy in 2007, we had no choice but to put more time into the business that is now known as Avocado Tamales. It was an incredible blessing because it ended up having amazing overnight results!

We started producing 1200 tamales a week and selling out every weekend  along with our wicked salsa at the Orange County Fairground where we are well known and you can still find me today. Our customers are still telling me that these are the best tamales they’ve ever had. We’ve have enjoyed selling at the Orange County Fairgrounds for eight years, and we have lived in Temecula for 25 years. We have enjoyed providing our area with the best tamales around for over 9 years and are ready to share them with people across the US.

Now we can’t wait to bring these wonderful flavors from our table to yours!
