Can you air fry tamales?

I found out today that an air fryer is a perfect way to heat up tamales. Just brush them with oil and pop them in there to get golden and crispy. The queso dip was homemade, then 'canned' in the Wonder Pot on warm cycle. (You could also do it in the Multi Cooker on sous vide.)

Keeping this in consideration, how do you heat up homemade tamales?

For steaming, remove tamales from bag, and place in a hot steamer for 15-20 minutes from a thawed state (5-10 minutes more if frozen). For oven baking, preheat oven to 325. Remove tamales from bag, wrap in foil, and place them on sheet pan. Bake 15-20 minutes if thawed, and 20-25 if frozen.

Furthermore, are tamales fried? If you find yourself with leftover tamales, they are quite delicious when breaded and fried. They get nice and crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. You can fry them whole or mix several tamales together and shape the masa into smaller pieces to make bite-size fried tamales.
