  • Whisk together masa harina, flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
  • Stir in corn and cheese.
  • Add 1/4 cup water at a time, stirring after each addition until mixture holds together. (Usually takes approximately 1 cup total.)
  • Heat 1/4 c oil in fry pan or cast iron skillet over medium heat until hot but not smoking.
  • Meanwhile, shape 1/3 cup of mixture with your hands to form a patty that is approximately 1/3 inch think.
  • Repeat with remaining mixture, making 8 patties.

  • If pan becomes dry, add more oil as you go.
  • Cover patties with foil to keep them warm until ready to serve.
