    cups masa harina (corn flour)

  • 1 1/2

    cup warm water

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1

    cup monterey jack cheese (or queso Oaxaca, or mozzarella), shredded

  • oil

  • 1

Option: Add 1 tablespoon refried beans to the filling! Option: Add 1 tablespoon pulled pork such as carnitas or pork al pastor or pork tinga or pork pibil or lechon asado to the filling! Option: Add a 1-2 tablespoons lard or bacon grease to the dough.
