Simply amazing. Great food, great service, great prices. I refuse to go anywhere else when I want good Mexican food. Tres Amigos is hands down my favorite plate! I also love the amount of support you show towards your law enforcement officers! Dont change a thing!

Because of Covid we have not been going out to eat and so when we decided that we desperately needed a change so we put in a to go order for our dinner. I have to say we were both thrilled with not only the service but the quality of the food. Please, if you need a break call Hot Tamales and order to go. You will not be disappointed.

#1 Mama's Green Chile Enchilada Casserole

I am a native New Mexican and I am a chili fanatic. The green chili casserole is excellent. The chili is hot and flavorful. I order this most of the time because it is so good. Authentic New Mexico cuisine. The calabasitas are also very good. Very few restaurants offer them.

#2 Stacked Enchiladas

We also get as a family the #8 stuffed sopapilla's and the taquito appetizer. Hot Tamales is by far the best in the Rio Rancho / Albuquerque area! I used to be biased about Sadies of New Mexico. I grew up going there and always loved it but.... my go to place now as an adult is Hot Tamales! The service is impeccable and you always feel welcome even if we don't get to dine in during this pandemic. The food is always delicious and I've never had my order messed up. I feel like they put their heart into their food so here is a heart felt review because they deserve it!

Wendy's Natillas ~ Ice Cream

I just finished a stuffed sopapilla dinner and it was the BEST! Also I have enough left over for a second meal. Hot Tamales is the nicest Mexican food restaurant in Rio Rancho. I have been going there for 4-5 years and never disappointed. When my son comes in town this is the first place he wants to go! I don't argue!!
