Melt butter in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper, chilies and oregano. Sauté until vegetables are tender. Transfer to a bowl with cornbread. Mix in cilantro, corn chips, corn kernels, cream-style corn and heated chicken stock. Fold in tamales at the end and do not break up. Salt and pepper to taste.
