      OPTION 1 - Steamer

Steam the tamales in the banana leaf for approx. 12 minutes or until fully heated through. Unwrap and serve with salsa. ¡Buen Provecho!

      OPTION 2 - Microwave

Remove the tamales from the bag and place in a covered microwave-safe dish, leaving the lid ajar slightly to allow steam to escape. Microwave the tamales:

· 1 to 3 tamales: microwave for approx. 4 mins

· 3 to 6 tamales: microwave for approx. 6-8 mins

…or until completely heated through.

Unwrap and serve with salsa. ¡Buen Provecho!
