Miguel’s Jr., Southern California’s destination for mouthwatering homestyle Mexican cuisine, is rolling out its famous holiday tamales and heartwarming pozole to celebrate the winter season. Beginning on December 1, Mary’s Tamales will be available through December 31 and homemade pozole will remain on the winter menu through February 16.

“The holidays were my favorite time of year growing up in Central Mexico,” says Mary Vasquez, Founder and Chief Recipe Officer of Miguel’s Jr. “I found myself in the kitchen all season long hand rolling masa and taste testing warm pozole broth. I love sharing my traditional Mexican recipes with Miguel’s Jr. guests.”

Housemade with 100% stone-ground premium masa, Miguel’s Jr. tamales are hand-crafted and prepared following Miguel’s Restaurants’ Founder and Chief Recipe Officer, Mary Vasquez’s secret recipe. Choose from slow-roasted succulent California Chile or perfectly seasoned Chile Rojo Pork and pre-order Mary’s Tamales online by the dozen. Tamale enthusiasts can mix and match flavors to try both award-winning recipes. Mary’s Tamales are also available a-la-carte for a meal anytime.

To prepare for the cold days ahead, Mary’s zesty, house-made pozole is also making an appearance on the Miguel’s Jr. winter menu from December 1 – February 16. This traditional Mexican soup features slow-simmered chile-based broth generously filled with tender hominy and a choice of Miguel’s Jr.’s authentically seasoned shredded chicken or slow-roasted Chile Verde Pork. Mary’s pozole is available in three sizes including a 16oz entree portion, a 32oz bowl, and a 64oz “pot size” for at-home family celebrations. This year, the flavorful and meaty pozole is served with a side of lemons, cabbage and onions for fans to customize to their preference.
