Reheating Tamales?

Will the tamales dry out when reheating? Is there a special way to reheat them?

I was hoping for something that didn't include the steamer again. Mil doesn't have one and I'm taking her some that I cooked last night.

The microwave's strength is reheating. Wrap the tamale in a paper towel and microwave it just until warm.

I would just spritz the husk with some water and then microwave it.

texasgirl, dampen the papertowel (not too wet!!) and put it over the tamale in the microwave. That will do the best job of it without a steamer.
