Pilar's Cooked Tamales ~ Reheating Instructions

They can be reheated by steaming or in the microwave.


To Steam Frozen

  • Remove Tamales from package. Leave in foil wrapper and steam in a steamer for 20 minutes or until hot. Don’t let pot boil dry.

  • Unwrap tamales and serve hot.


If Tamales are thawed - Microwave

  • Remove aluminum foil BUT leave in parchment paper wrap and place on a microwaveable plate and cover with a damp paper towel.

  • Microwave for 2 – 3 minutes or until hot.

  • Uncover, remove parchment paper and serve hot.


Enjoy Pilar's Tamales on their own, or with your favorite salsa.
