I just logged on to my computer to look up Red's tamales. I remember them. My family used to go to the drive-in movie in the SF bay area. They always had ads for them during intermission. They sold them at the snack bar. I have found the canned ones a lot more recently. I was hoping that someone knew of another brand that was close. I love tamales!

Reds Tamales Made at home

I grew up in Oakland and my Mom fixed these every Tuesday from frozen six-packs. You can closely approximate them today pretty easy. Buy ready to go masa at a Mexican grocery. Mix with tamale spices and beef broth to get a toothpaste consistency, spread inside wet soaked corn husks. Spread 2-3 tablespoons of Hormel Chili con carne with no beans on top of masa. Roll up and steam for 1-2 hours. That'll bring back memories, and explains why Red's were unique.

Grew up having Red's on a weekly basis in Monterey, Ca...

A local old timer writes an occasional column in the local paper and he mentioned Red's in this column..
