Reheating tamales

curiousbaker | Oct 3, 2007 06:47 PM

I'm planning on testing out tamales this weekend as part of a plan for a party in a few weeks. Never made them before. Every recipe I read online says that they freeze very well, so I'm tempted to make a huge batch and freeze. That would help a lot, since I'm planning a number of other dishes as well. But there are distinctly differing opinions on how to reheat. Some say you MUST steam them directly from the freezer, others say resteaming makes them soggy and you should heat them gently in the oven on low. Which is it? And can I really get away with freezing? And does anyone have other tamale hints?
