Directions Edit

  1. In a medium-size bowl, mix all ingredients through ½ teaspoon salt together and set aside.
  2. 2 cups masa, available in some grocery stores and in Latin-American grocery stores
  3. 1 teaspoon salt
  4. 1¼ cup 1½ cup lukewarm water
  5. oil for frying
  6. In another medium-size bowl, combine masa and 1 teaspoon salt. Gradually add enough water, stirring constantly, to make a stiff dough. Divide into 24 pieces, form each piece into a ball and place under a damp towel.
  7. Place one ball between two sheets of plastic wrap and flatten dough with a flat plate. Remove top plastic and place a tablespoon of filling in the center of the dough. Press filling down.
  8. Pull up one side of plastic to flip one part of the dough over the other, covering filling and creating a crescent shape. Press edges together and place under a damp towel. Repeat with remaining turnovers.
