corn maiden tamales at Trader Joe's

Went to my local Trader Joe's today and noticed that they started supplying Corn Maiden tamales. I remember Corn Maiden from the farmer's markets when I lived down in LA(they are based in Culver city). Their take on the tamale is a bit untraditional but very yummy. I remember tamales stuffed with shrimp/spinach & leek/turkey & cranberry/green corn/Belgian chocolate. What was also great was all the different sauces that they had accompanying each type of tamale.

The Trader Joe selection was disappointingly smaller (only 3 varieties that I saw). I had the Sweet Corn with cheddar and green chilies, served with roasted corn sauce. The slight hint of sweetness from the corn balanced well with the cheddar, but I didn't really detect any green chilies. Still very good nonetheless. The cost for a pack of two tamales was $3.79.
