You could make homemade tamales but if you do not have time then this is the next best thing. This Texas Tamale Soup recipe is gluten-free. *GF to make this recipe gluten-free, check the labels of the canned ingredients. I am always looking for easy gluten-free recipes and this one is both super tasty and gluten-free.
If you cannot find canned items with gluten-free designation, then fresh items are recommended and should be thoroughly rinsed before cooking. I recommend they be precooked and then added just like you would the canned versions.
Growing up in Texas I am familiar with all these ingredients and spicy food is a favorite of mine. This easy tamale soup is tasty and nutritious. This no-fail recipe gives you all the taste without the hassle. It is great for feeding a crowd or an impromptu get-together when you need a quick easy meal. This Mexican soup will become one of your family’s favorite comfort foods.

Having celiac disease has made cooking a challenge. However, I would much rather make my own than take a chance on restaurant fare. I have been cooking since I was ten years old and love the process of creating my own food. The challenge is simply the availability of gluten-free ingredients. With new FDA labeling laws, this process is becoming easier as food manufacturers begin to implement the new GF labels. Many companies have been doing this voluntarily, but regulation makes shopping and locating GF products much easier. Most larger grocery store chains are also posting the GF designation next to their GF products saving time for shoppers. I keep my cupboard stocked with GF canned vegetables buying them when they are available and on sale if possible.
Sometimes you just want a hot bubbly soup. This soup is a classic Texas soup with a touch of southwestern flair. This Tex Mex soup is great for impromptu get-togethers and family dinners. This is also a great wintertime dish to keep the chill off (yes even in Texas).
I prefer the frozen precooked tamales which I defrost and then cut without any precooking on my part. They hold up better in the soup.

Texas Tamale Soup
- 1 skillet
- 1 dutch oven or stock pot
- 2 cans beef tamales in chili sauce or precooked thawed frozen beef tamales (GF)
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon cumin powder
- 1 can creamed corn may substitute one cup plain corn or fresh corn (GF)
- 4 ounces mild green chilies GF
- 1 can white hominy GF
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 2 cans pinto beans GF
- 1 can stewed tomatoes GF
- 2 poblano peppers seeded rinsed well and chopped
- 1 can beef broth GF
- 1/8 cup crushed tortillas chips
- 1 tbsp sour cream
- 1 chopped green onion with top
- 1/4 cup grated cheddar or Mexican cheese
- Cook the crumbled ground meat with the onion, poblano peppers, chili powder, and cumin and stir until beef is browned. Add to a large Dutch oven or soup pot.
- Stir in hominy, tomatoes, beans, corn, and broth (including water and masa harina if using frozen tamales). Bring to an initial boil, reduce the heat and simmer uncovered for 40 minutes.
- Near the end of the cooking cycle, remove the paper from tamales and chop across (not lengthwise) into bite-sized pieces. Stir tamales gently into the soup pot and heat another 5 minutes.
- Top with crushed tortilla chips (GF), chopped green onion, a sprinkle of cheddar cheese (GF), and a dollop of sour cream (GF) if desired. This is also good with cornbread, but I prefer the crushed tortilla chips.
