Heat griddle or comal to medium to medium-low heat. Mix masa harina and water. Add shortening, salt, flour and baking powder, kneading until blended and masa forms a ball, cleaning sides of bowl. Wet hands, shape into 1-1/2” to 2” balls. Cover to prevent drying.

With moistened hands, pat and flatten into 1/4” thick patty, forming a 3”-4” circle. Place gordita on hot griddle or comal. Cook each side 6 to 8 minutes or until lightly browned.


Fry each gordita in hot oil (375°) until lightly browned. Remove; drain. Slice gordita halfway through, forming pocket. Fill with lettuce, cheese, tomato, onion, sour cream and your favorite meat (if desired).

Serves 12.
