Del Taco is saying “Happy Tamaledays” with a new slate of seasoned, shredded pork tamales. The festive, expanded menu lineup launches Thursday, November 19, and includes two tamales for $4, several smothered tamale options, such as Cholula Smothered Tamales, and a Tamale Fiesta Pack for the whole family to enjoy.

Del Taco’s limited-edition Happy Tamaledays wrapping paper is also back by popular demand with two new custom designs available for purchase at the Del Taco webstore, while supplies last.

Following an authentic, Mexican recipe, Del Taco’s tamales are made with seasoned, shredded pork and fire-roasted salsa, and surrounded by a layer of soft, stone-ground corn masa and wrapped in an authentic corn husk.

“Our authentic tamales are the perfect holiday comfort food, and this year you can make your hot tamale even hotter with Cholula Hot Sauce,” says Tim Hackbardt, Del Taco’s Chief Marketing Officer. “We’ve also introduced our new Tamale Fiesta Pack that includes 12 tamales to feed the whole family or to stock up your fridge for a few days of meals with a simple trip through our convenient drive-thrus.”

Making tamales is a labor of love for many families over the holidays. Del Taco is embracing this tradition by surprising different groups of essential workers and deserving community members with free tamales every week in December excluding Christmas Day.

“The holidays may look a little different this year, especially for essential employees working long hours and making personal sacrifices to support their communities,” adds Hackbardt. “The Del Taco family is on a mission to lift spirits and spread a little Tamaleday cheer this season, one tamale at a time.”
