This was my first attempt at making these beloved little gems and they were relatively easy; I just left the kitchen a little messy after toughing everything with my masa hands.  You can fill them with most anything. Usually they are topped with a pickled cabbage slaw, but one new recipe a day is about all I can handle. I topped mine with some salsa and radishes.


  • 2 cups masa
  • 1.5 cups warm water or just enough for it to hold together
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1.5 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 a can of refried beans
  • 1/2 can of corn
  • 1/2 on a yellow onion, diced
  • 1 package of seitan, optional


Step 1

heat seitan (I like mine a little burned), then add onions saute about 5 minutes

Step 2

mix in corn and beans then set aside

Step 3

add the garlic powder and salt to the masa and then add enough water to have it all hold together

Step 4

take a small handful of masa and flatten it out big enough to make a little bowl with it in your hand, then add some filling, pinch up the sides up and pat flat

Step 5

use a non stick pan or a bit of oil and cook on each side about 4 minuets or until it gets golden brown

Step 6
