Instructions to Reheat Tamales

Your tamales are fully cooked and ready to be served after reheating.


1. If you have frozen your tamales, we recommend placing them in the refrigerator at lest one day before serving to start the thawing process.

2. Place tamales upright in a steamer or a pot with a colander with water just covering the bottom of steamer or colander. Do not submerge tamales in water. (Remember not to let the water dry-out) Cover and place on stove.

3. Reheat time will vary from 10 to 20 minutes depending on the number of tamales, the size of the pot, and the heat that they are being placed at. (We recommend no more than medium to medium-high - Internal temperature should be 160 degrees)

4. If you are using a microwave, wrap a wet paper towel around the tamale (leave corn husk on) and heat for 35-45 seconds or until you have reached your desired temperature
