Heat On! The Five Best Ways To Reheat Tamales

By Rose | Storing Tips

Tamale is a classic dish derived from Mesoamerican cuisine. While there are plenty of variations on this dish, the recipe is made of dough that’s steamed inside a corn husk or banana leaf. This gives the dough a distinct flavor and fantastic corn (or banana leaf) aroma.

The history of tamale is a rich and interesting one. It originated thousands of years ago, and the first pictorial reference to it was found in 100AD in Guatemala. The tamale was also used by the Aztecs and Mayas as a means of taking food along with them on long journeys. Apart from being the perfect lunchbox meal in South America and Mesoamerican areas, it was also considered to be devine food.

As you can see, tamale is a very well-traveled dish that crosses cultures and is extremely popular!

So today, I want to help those of you who love munching tamale (which includes me, of course!). If you have cooked too much and have a lot of leftovers, then reheating them the next day again is a big no-brainer (nothing could be sadder than wasted tamale.) However, heating tamales the right way is no easy task, as they can end up dry and starchy if you are not careful. So today, I want to help you learn how to heat tamale properly.

So get your Mexican hats and fiesta face ready, because here are the five best ways to reheat tamale.

Ask a bunch of people what their favorite food is and the chances are you will hear the word “Mexican” a lot. That will come as no surprise to those who have sampled the wonderful cuisine created by our friends south of the border. I mean, do you know anyone who does not have a story about Mexican food? Whether its a fantastic crunchy fish taco or a bad burrito that’s sent them scurrying to the bathroom, Mexican food has been a massive part of nearly everyone’s culinary journey. The rich history and culture of Mexican cuisine is further complemented by its symphony of flavors and eye-popping colors.

However, as good as Mexican food is, this cuisine is not without its critics. Not so much because of its taste, but because there are some people who deem it to be on the unhealthy side. But to be honest, most of these critics’ experiences of Mexican food have been limited to trips to Taco Bell and their local burrito parks. While it is true that Mexican food is not the healthiest of cuisines out there, there are still plenty of recipes that are as good for the body as they are for the gut.

One of the main problems is that Mexican food is heavily reliant on scrumptious carbs, which as we all know, are leading enemies of serious dieters. Since the main staples of Mexican food are rice, beans, and tortillas, it can be difficult to eat this cuisine without eating some serious carbs. But fear not fellow dieters, losing a few pounds does not mean that you need to part with your favorite enchilada. I am here to tell you that there are a lot of low carb Mexican recipes for you.

So put on your most festive sombrero and let’s cook some low carb Mexican dishes that are sure to shed some pounds for you.
