Ingredients Preparation Share




  1. In a medium bowl, mix Masarica and salt, pour water into the Masarica mixture. With wet hands, knead the mixture until a large ball of dough forms. Roll out the dough and form 12 balls.
  2. Using the tortilla press, lined with plastic, press each ball into 4 ½ "diameter circles. (Keep the dumplings and tortillas moist by covering them with damp towels.)
  3. Heat a lightly greased griddle, griddle or cast iron skillet on the stove over medium heat. To the circle dough, add a slice of cheese and strips of jalapeño pepper (if you prefer). Fold the circle in half (crescent-shaped), pressing down on the edges to seal. Place the tortillas on a hot cooking surface. Cook for about 6 minutes until golden brown, toasted, and cheese is melted, turning once.
  4. Serve with guacamole and salsa, if desired.
