7-Layer Rice Bowl and Pork Tamales

Up first, the 7-Layer Rice Bowl. You possibly can select from pork or hen — or a combo of each — for this entree. You may as well add guacamole for $1, which I did as a result of guacamole is scrumptious.

These have been FANTASTIC. The tamale itself is a pleasant consistency, and an excellent steadiness between the pork and the cornmeal. However the actual star right here is the Ranchero sauce! It’s bought numerous good taste and warmth — precise warmth not simply “Disney warmth”! The spice is properly balanced with the bitter cream and beneficiant serving of queso fresco as nicely. I may’ve eaten at the least two servings of those — and need I’d’ve requested for additional sauce for the rice bowl.
