What Are Tamales
If you’re not sure how to steam tamales, you’re not alone! Many people who don’t have a tamale steamer don’t know that they can reheat tamales in the microwave, which can also be done at home. Simply steam them in the microwave for about 15 to 20 minutes until they are hot and tender. After that, you can serve them with a little salsa. In addition, you can reheat tamales in the oven at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes.
How to Reheat Tamales
To reheat tamales, place them in a pot of water at the lowest temperature possible. The water should be boiling, but it will take a longer time to boil in an oven. Once the water is boiling, place the tamales on the rack, centered and covered with foil. Continue steaming for about one hour or until the husks are tender, or until the tamales are soft. Once done, remove the tamales from the pot and let them stand for at least 30 minutes before serving.
To steam tamales, you will need a hot plate. A ceramic plate is better than a glass one. Pour a little water onto the pan. Be sure that the water doesn’t cover the husks or banana leaves as they will leak. Once the tamales are cooked, remove them from the pan and allow them to cool for about five to 15 minutes before serving. When serving, allow them to stand for at least 30 minutes.
