Meal Card: Turkey Tamales with Southwest Rice and Tomatillo Sauce

Tamales are a Mesoamerican dish consisting of a soft corn dough that surrounds a flavorful filling wrapped in corn husk. Our tamales are packed with rich shredded turkey, chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic, onion, and just a touch of cayenne for a flavorful filling the whole family will love. The tamales are served with a medley of black beans, corn, and bell peppers with our tangy tomatillo sauce on the side for dipping and drizzling.

I understand sous vide the tamales since they’re in a package..but sous vide the rice and vegetables? I think this recipe is wrong…I’m trying it out now in my Suvie so we’ll see!

Hi Austin, this recipe is correct. The rice, beans, and vegetables are Sous Vide too. While they’re not technically Sous Vide under a vacuum in water, the high heat of 180°F will cook everything through. Hope you enjoyed your meal!

Hi Sherlie, this meal does take time to heat up (the water inside the Suvie must reach 180°F), but 2 hours seems a bit long. I would email Help@Suvie.com for assistance.

I can’t believe I paid that much per serving for this meal.

My husband and I really enjoyed this meal. I didn’t notice prior to opening that it was not a rapid cook, so fortunately I had started dinner early and it worked out. I will be reordering this one again. I could just eat the rice dish for the meal!

This was the best suvie meal we’ve had so far! The tomatillo sauce was delish and the sous vide method for cooking the tamales yielded perfect texture and great flavor.
