Serve with your favorite steamed vegetable.
If you don't have a tamalera, stack tamales in steamer basket in large saucepan or pot filled one-quarter full with water (about 1 qt. water). Make sure the tamales are not in the water. Bring water to boil; cover. Steam 1 hour or until tamales pull away from corn husks, adding more water to saucepan as needed.
To avoid burning bottom of tamalera or pot 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 pot.
