 Theresa's Tamales - Cleveland New Mexico

Author Message

Theresa's Tamales - Cleveland New Mexico Sat, 03/10/12 3:15 PM (permalink)
A little shack on NM 518 between Holman and Cleveland, Theresa's Tamales serves the kind of New Mexican food favored by New Mexicans.

Chiles are prominent. The Chile Rojo and Chile Verde are radiant and strong. When you've been away from this kind of food for even a little while it can be breathtaking to become reacquainted with it.
Both my wife and I got the same plate. Pork Tamales with tortillas, chile verde stew and pico de gallo.
Both the red and green chiles are outstanding. This is not the (becoming more common) pedestrian chile one can find in too many NM eateries. 
The red, in particular, stood out to me as being exceptionally good. The masa surrounding the tamales has an airy quality that is memorable.
The pico de gallo was as fresh, sharp and hot as it looks in the photo.
Other diners were ordering burritos that could be customized. They looked outstanding and I will be back for these. If you are anywhere near Taos, Chimayo, Las Vegas NM or Santa Fe I'd strongly recommend a visit.
