Balance out your food choices throughout the day so you can enjoy one of these sweet tamales.
If you don't have a tamalera, stand tamales in steamer basket in large saucepan filled 1/4 full with water (about 6 cups). Make sure tamales are not touching the water. Bring water to boil, then cover. Steam 1 hour or until tamales pull away from husks, adding more water to saucepan as needed.
Arrange remaining corn husks on bottom and up side of tamalera, allowing ends of husks to extend over top. Stand tamales in prepared tamalera, then fold over ends of husks to cover tamales. If necessary, use additional corn husks or dampened kitchen towel to completely cover tamales.
To avoid burning bottom of tamalera or saucepan if it runs out of water, drop in a coin along with the water. The coin will sizzle throughout the cooking time. If the sizzling stops, more water needs to be added to the tamalera.
