Frozen Tamales in an Instant Pot

  • Author: Stephanie Pass


You can have frozen tamales right from the freezer ready in less than 30 minutes in the Instant Pot.




  1. Insert the trivet that came with your Instant Pot
  2. Then insert the steamer basket on top of the trivet.
  3. Pour the water into the bottom of the Instant Pot.
  4. Insert a small ramekin or something similar to help hold the tamales upright.
  5. Add the frozen tamales with folded side down around the ramekin.
  6. Set the Instant Pot to Manual.
  7. Set the time to 15 minutes.
  8. Do a natural release.
  9. If you can, it’s best to lift up the steamer insert out of the pot, but if you can’t reach it, then gently use a spoon or tongs to lift out the tamales.
  10. Serve immediately.
