Anyone ever tried Mama Garcia tamales from Sam's Club?

How do you cook them?

We just bought some and there are no cooking instructions.

They are pork & beef tamales.

Microwave? Oven? Any idea?

I tried google, no luck.

TIA!

I've never bought tamales in the store before. But, traditionally, they are fully cooked so you heat them up in a pot with a steamer basket insert. You will always get the best results from steaming.

Hmmm. We do not have a steamer basket insert. Thanks for the info though?

Any next best option ideas?

Top them with wet paper towels and microwave them in the shucks. 1 minute for 4 tamales. Don't do a bunch at a time and you'll be alright. Cook them too long and they'll be insanely dry.

I'm going to assume (1) they are fully cooked, (2) in a husk and (3) frozen.

Microwave: Dampen a paper towel and wrap the frozen tamale in the paper towel. Place on plate and microwave for 2 minutes at high. Let sit for a 1 minute, unwrap and eat!
