Now here’s a bit of a treat that I learned while living south of San Antonio. I make this quite often for myself as a treat. [I can eat these for a meal actually!] DH likes them as well. Think “stuffed tortilla” and you’ll get the idea!
2 cups of corn masa harina
1 cup water
1 cup shredded cheese mix
(frying cheese, mozzarella, ricotta)
Mix corn masa harina and water
together in a mixing bowl until
smooth. Knead well. Cover bowl
and let dough rest for 10 minutes.
Shape dough into eight 2-inch
diameter balls. On a lightly floured surface, roll each
back into 6-inch flat rounds. Each round should be
about 1/8th of an inch thick.
Sprinkle ¼ cup of cheese over each round. Place a second
round over the cheese and pinch the edges together to
seal the cheese in.
Heat in a slightly greased skillet over medium high heat.
Cook one round at a time, about 2 minutes on each side
or until lightly browned.
Notes: Can be stuffed with a combination of cheese, refried beans,
fried pork rind or chicken.
