The Absolute Best Ways To Reheat Tamales
There are multiple ways to reheat tamales in the microwave: the first option is to wrap them in damp paper towels, and if the tamales are still in their husks, these can be moistened in place of a paper towel. Another way is to add a few drops of water onto the tamales' wrapping and cover the plate with plastic film.
Fill the pot with 2 to 3 inches of water to cover the bottom completely without touching the steaming basket, then place the basket inside the pot and cover with a lid until the water comes to a boil. Safely place the tamales in the basket using a pair of tongs before replacing the lid and reducing the heat to medium.
Preheat the oven to 425 F, wrap the tamales with aluminum foil, then place them inside the oven, and cook for about 20 minutes, flipping halfway through to heat evenly. Another way is to place husked tamales on a baking sheet and cook in the oven at 350 F.
Air Fryer
Simply moisten the husks or wrap slightly with cold water while heating the fryer to a mid-range temperature. Place them in the fryer basket for about five minutes, spacing them out evenly for the air to circulate around them, and then carefully remove them to check if they've finished cooking.
Warm a non-stick pan on medium heat, add roughly one teaspoon of olive oil, then remove the tamales from their husks and place them in the pan. Cover them with a lid, and allow them to cook, flipping them every 2 to 3 minutes to allow for even cooking.
