Paula McKinney grew up loving her Uncle Nick’s homemade tamales, made from his very own recipe. In fact, she loved those tamales so much, she spent years learning the craft of tamale making from her uncle. She memorized the ingredients and mastered the cooking techniques that made these tamales so scrumptious. Now, McKinney and her husband want to bring all that flavor straight to Oklahoma City, OK. Their appropriately named food trailer, Nick’s Tamales, rolls around OKC feeding the masses this classic Mexican cuisine.
Everything here is homemade, according to Uncle Nick’s customs, and you’ll taste the difference. Tamales are just plain better when made fresh. Here, you’ll find all your standard meats like tender pork marinated in a spicy chili pepper sauce or juicy chicken smothered in verde salsa. This all comes wrapped in a light, fluffy masa shell with a mildly sweet flavor that pairs perfectly with the savory meats. Looking for something epic? Ask for a loaded tamale and get your dish smothered in toppings. If you’re in need of a crowd-pleasing vendor, book with Nick’s Tamales. Guests will love it.
Loaded Beef Jumbo Tamale - All the great flavor of a beef tamale topped with black bean sauce, cheddar cheese, and sour cream. Perfect if you’re feelin’ ravenous.
