Serve with fresh fruit and a quick bagged salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Lite Dressing.
Place assembled tamales in steamer basket in large saucepan filled about 1/4 full with water. (Make sure tamales are not touching the water.) Bring water to boil; cover. Steam 1 hour or until tamales are done, adding more water to saucepan if necessary.
If you don't have enough banana leaves to cover tamales in tamalera, you can use a dampened kitchen towel instead.
To avoid burning bottom of tamalera if it runs out of water, add a coin to tamalera 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.
