  • 1 cup masa harina (instant corn masa mix)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 cup oil for frying


  1. In a large bowl, stir together the masa harina, salt and hot water. Gradually mix in the shortening and flour. If the dough seems dry, add a little more hot water. Form the dough into balls that will fit into the palm of your hand.
  2. Line a work surface with waxed paper or plastic. Sprinkle with water. Flatten balls on the wet surface until about 1/4 inch thick.
  3. Heat a griddle over medium heat. Cook the gordit's on each side until they are cooked through.
  4. Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium to medium-high heat until hot. Fry each gordita until puffed, pressing it down into the oil occasionally with a spatula. Drain briefly on paper towels, cut the tips off and stuff full of your favorite foods.
