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.
|2 cups||masa harina (I use Maseca brand so far)|
|2 3/4 cups plus some||water|
# 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.
* I wonder if they wouldn't be awesome if fried in about 1/4 inch of oil instead of dry-grilled.
* 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.
