TAKE-AND-BAKE TAMALE PIE
This savory Tex-Mex-inspired dish offers great taste for take-and-bake or takeout. Simply layer Chef-mate Chorizo Skillet with cheesy polenta, shredded cheese and green onion.
COOKED BEFORE CANNING
What makes Chef-mate a best-seller? Our proprietary Cooked Before Canning™ (CBC) method. Most bulk canned food is cooked during the canning process, which often overcooks food near the edges and creates a metallic taste. Chef-mate products are Cooked Before Canning™ to ensure quality taste, color, and texture in every can.
