Twist one end of the plastic wrap to seal one end of the tamale. Steam the tamales for 45 minutes or until the masa has set. Allow to cool slightly before unwrapping.
  3. While the tamales cool, in a saucepan over medium heat, combine 13.5 oz.

Serve two tamales per order with ¼ cup of cheddar sauce.
