The tamale preparing apparatus comprises two sets of cartridges, a plunging system, steamer forms, and a steamer pot to make and cook tamales. The ingredients for tamales are inserted into the cartridges set to make tamales. In one embodiment, the ingredients inserted into the cartridges could be corn dough (masa) and pre-cooked meat or cheese or veggies or any combination thereof. The two cartridges nest together and allow the extrusion of the masa around the pre-cooked meat filling into the parchment paper tube.


The plunging system consists of a hand-held device that can be battery-operated or plugged into an outlet to extrude the tamale into the steamer forms. In another embodiment, the plunging system is used as an automatic tamale machine for dispensing the materials into the steamer forms. The plunger of the tamale gun is used to help the plunging system to dispense the materials from the cartridges.



The tamale is extruded to the steamer forms in the steamer pots once the plunger is pressed down. In an embodiment, the steamer forms could be the shapers for tamales, when the tamales are kept inside the steamer pot for cooking.
