Gordita Recipe

2 cups Maseca Corn Flour
1/4 cup Flour or GF Flour
1/4 t sea salt
2 cups water

Mix all dry ingredients well, make a well in the center of the corn flour. Add the water all at once. Mix well, Knead for 1 to 2  minutes.  Separate into two large masses of dough, then separate each large mass of dough into 4 additional balls. Place balls of dough into the same bowl and place cling wrap on top of the bowl and form each into a pancake with your hands. This "pancake" will be about the size of a DVD. Place on a hot griddle, add a little PAM to brown each side, heat each side for 4 minutes and turn around making sure to cook and brown the other side.

Run a sharp knife along the edge of the Gorditas, and make a deep slit into the Gordita.

Fill with sauteed vegetables, beans or meat and shredded lettuce as well as a little fresh Pico de Gallo or Fresh Salsa.
