November 16, 2015 // Franchising.com // SAN ANTONIO – For the first time, Taco Cabana will offer handmade, traditional holiday tamales to its guests. Starting today, tamales will be available at all Taco Cabana locations in Texas and Oklahoma throughout the season while supplies last.
Taco Cabana has partnered with critically acclaimed San Antonio tamale maker, Tamahli, to bring its guests authentic, hand-wrapped tamales made with quality ingredients, fresh-ground masa and no preservatives or fillers. Available in pork or chicken, the tamales can be purchased on a plate featuring 3 tamales, rice and beans for $6.49, in a three-pack for $3.99 or a la carte for $1.49 each.
