Can I buy Puerto Rican style pasteles online?

I live in a part of the US where the closest Puerto Rican food is over 1,300 miles from my house. I can't afford to fly to Puerto Rico or New York whenever I get the craving for them. Does anyone know of any place to get Puerto Rican pork tamales shipped anywhere in the US (besides the Goya website, which charges over $60.00 for 12 pairs of pasteles)? Thank you

    Have you considered making pasteles on your own? Or just cooking Puerto Rican dishes at home? You can't go wrong with a little guide that seems to be made just for your craving lol Pretty funny that I know about this book (I love Caribbean food too). It's called "Pasteles "Step by Step" (Recipes from Puerto Rico # 1)."

    http://www.amazon.com/Pasteles-Step-Recipes-Puerto...

    And I would also recommend "Puerto Rico True Flavors" and "Puerto Rican Cookery."

    See the reviews and the glimpse into those books to see if it seems easy to use :)

    Enjoy your pasteles! Yumyum

    Tamales and pasteles are wholly different things. Mexicans do tamales and puerto ricans do pasteles. If i have been you individually i might now not buy them on-line, you dont understand how people could grow to be or sell you historical stuff. U can seem on-line locations to devour like little restaurants or latin supermarkets that have food on hand and speak to a cook there and pay them extra for the extra work of doing pasteles some humans would do it for a couple of dollars.
