Weather Report: Cool Today but HOT TAMALE!!

(Yeah I know, it's corny, but so are tamales LOL)

Ok, so I am living in Maine's North Woods and you can NOT find any decent Mexican food north of Boston! I am SOOO JONESING for some good tamales. I used to buy the best tamales at a truckstop just south of Stockton CA on I-5 called Flag City. They were homemade and brought in daily. I would buy 3 beef and 3 chicken and that would be a meal. It's the chicken tamales I am really hungry for. They had chicken meat in just enough of a nice creamy sauce inside the tamale. I'm hoping someone here has either eaten these wonderful little gems or recognizes my description as something similar to their recipe and can give me an idea of how to duplicate them. Of course, any other tamale recipes, sweet or savory, would also be welcome!
