Ordered without the meat and it was still delicious - eggs were well cooked and the red and green chile was the perfect topping. Best sopaipilla in town!

#6 Rellenos Buenos

Had the #6 Chili Rellenos plate with Mexican rice and Calabacitas. Two mouth-watering green chilis stuffed with creamy cheese and the Green chili sauce was so yummy I got evey bit of it! My goodness it was so well prepared and the sides were delicious too. Sopapillas rounded out dinner. We had cinnamon honey on them. Wow!

Chile con Queso & Chips

This queso is kind of like crack. It's got a kick and it's great any time of the day or night. Bonus factor: it won't rot your teeth!

#3 Tres Tacos

Taco Tuesday and any other day ending in 'y'. I love me some HT tacos! I always get the ground beef because the meat has a great mix of spices and its not all greasy like you find at a lot of other places. From there you can spice it up as much as you want. Try putting the queso on them , it's like hand-held nachos.

#1 Mama's Green Chile Enchilada Casserole

New to New Mexico and found Hot Tamales Restaurant and just love this dish, I always order it and have told people about it. The Green Chile is just enough hotness to it. Eat inside and when we order takeout the food is always hot.

#2 Stacked Enchiladas

Do you want to feel alive? Do you want to find the flavor of pure happiness?? If you put a fried egg on top and queso it just beyond amazing! Enchiladas by Hot Tamales are the reason the man has survived the long exhausting year of 2020.

Green Chile Stew

I swear this secret recipe that can cure any sickness! Every time I feel even a little sick, I call in an order of stew and feel fine by the next day. This might be the pandemic cure!

#2 Stacked Enchiladas

My "go to" all the time is the Red Stacked Enchiladas w/ shredded beef. It's pretty much a weekly MUST! The red chili is very flavorful.

#1 Mama's Green Chile Enchilada Casserole

We love Hot Tamales! The Green Chile Enchilada Casserole is my absolute favorite and I love the calabacitas that come with it. We also love getting a chip appetizer. It doesn't matter which one you pick Guacamole or Queso because they both rock. The salsa is delicious. I can't say enough about Hot Tamales. We love it so much we gave it a nickname HoTa. If you have room after this huge plate the Flan is awesome as well.

#12 Hot Tamales

I live in Farmington, nm. Visited family in rio rancho. I had to get my Hot tamales fix before I went back to Farmington. Mmm. Sooo good! Even my 8yr old boy loves them! And he's a picky eater.

Josés Hot Tamale Bowl

If you are not sure what you want you will be happy to choose this posole/tamale combo! Been getting it ever since Hot Tamales opened!

Carne Adovada

It's all about the chile here. I usually don't try red chile items at restaurants because I'm too picky about the flavor, consistency and I hate spitting out seeds and flakes. None of that applies to HT red chile. The sauce is awesome and the pork they cook in it is lean but not dry.
