How Heat Salsa Garcia Tamales

 

Defrost Prior to Heating:

Steam:

Steaming (Recommended)

The steaming process is the original method that I use to cook all of our raw tamales before I package them. This gives the masa the perfect amount of moisture and allows you to experience my tamales the way they were meant. You should notice the perfect harmony of warm spicy aromas, smooth textures, and bold flavors that are unique to my family recipe.

You’ll need:

1 Pot (sizes vary depending on how many tamales cooked)

1 Steaming tray or basket 

Water

Steps:

Place your steaming tray into the pot

Fill the bottom of the pot with water, but do not let the water touch the tray

Place tamales on top of the steaming tray and bring water to a boil

Cover pot with a lid and for frozen tamales let steam for 10-15 minutes

 

Skillet 

For a crispier masa texture

You'll need:

Aluminum Foil

Skillet or Frying Pan

Steps:

Wrap each Tamal entirely in foil

Heat pan up to medium heat and let tamales warm for 8-10 minute

 

Bake
