I really don't think a tamale (a good one IMO) should be "mushy". The dough after steaming should be firm, but tender. The filling also, should not be mushy I like a very flavorful filling since the dough can be bland. I usually use pork and slow cook it with spices onions, chili peppers cilantro and tomatillos. It may not be a traditional filling, but it's pretty tasty.
