Ever since having them, I've been wanting to learn how to make them.  This is what I've got so far.  I'm happy with the results.

! Ingredients

2 cups masa harina (I use Maseca brand so far)
2 3/4 cups plus some water
1 tbsp oil

! Procedures

# Pre-heat non-stick skillet or griddle to 350.

# Combine all.

# Pull out an amount a bit greater than the size of a golf ball.

# Mold into a ball, then press your thumb into the center to make a cup shape.

# Fill the cup shape with the filling you plan to use.

# Pull the edges up together so the filling is sealed in dough.

# Press flat-ish.

# Place on griddle.

# I cook them on the first side for a while, until they harden on the bottom.  Then I put butter on the hardened side and cook that side till browning occurs.  Flip and repeat.

# When browned on both sides, remove from heat.  They'll be hot for a while.  Enjoy.

! Thoughts

* I wonder if they wouldn't be awesome if fried in about 1/4 inch of oil instead of dry-grilled.

! Fillings

* Holls made a spinach dip with parmesan and other cheeses which ended up to be a great filling.

* I'm sure some taco-seasoned ground beef or cheeses would be good too.

* They're also good plain, with salsa.
