How to re-heat Becerra's Tex-Mex Tamales

What we recommend: a stovetop steam pot, Instant Pot or equivalent, fill the pot with 2 to 3 cups of water, 2 to 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil, or olive oil. Fire up the stove to bring the water to a boil to create steam. Once the water is steaming, place the frozen or refrigerated tamales in the basket. In a separate small stockpot, combine 2 cups of water and 1 tablespoon of cooking oil and bring to a medium heat temperature while the steam pot is heating up. Use this water to ladle over the tamales while they are steaming. The corn husk will absorb the water and keep the masa soft. The time needed to reheat will vary, use your best judgment. Check them often to reach the desired readiness. Remove and enjoy with your favorite Becerra's Tex-Mex Salsa & cold beverage!
