Frequently Asked Questions
How are Pasquale's Tamales made?
Our tamales are made with high quality beef and hand rolled in real corn shucks the old fashioned way. They are tied into bundles of three with a strand of corn shuck. Next, the tamales are slowly simmered for six hours before being flash frozen.
Are the tamales really "all natural"?
Absolutely! Pasquale's Tamales are made with natural foods and contain no additives and no preservatives of any kind.
How long do I heat the tamales?
Use one of the methods below to warm your hot tamales. Pasquale's does not recommend microwave heating. Serve hot.
STEAM METHOD: Place tamales to be heated in a small colander or strainer, and place over a saucepan of boiling water for 25 to 30 minutes. Place lid over colander, this will help retain the steam.
SAUCEPAN METHOD: Place tamales open end up in a saucepan. Fill with warm water to level covering 3/4 of the tamales. Do not cover tamales with water. Let water come to a boil, reduce heat to simmer and let cook for 20 minutes. Drain tamales in a colander for 5 minutes before serving. (Draining for 5 minutes will allow tamales to firm).
