Ingredients

  • 16 oz. Sukhi's Chicken Coconut Curry with Mango
  • 1 cup masa harina
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • cilantro, finely chopped
  • 4 oz. cotija cheese

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, mix together masa harina, water, and salt to create a dough. Roll the dough into 6-8 little balls.
  • Heat a large skillet or griddle at medium-high heat.
  • Flatten a masa ball in between two sheets of plastic wrap in a tortilla press or under a heavy pan. The dough should be about twice the thickness of a homemade tortilla.
  • Remove flattened masa from plastic wrap and place on hot skillet or griddle for 10-15 seconds on each side.
  • Flip again and cook on both sides for about 1 minute each. You should begin to see an air pocket form in the center.
  • Once slightly cooled, use a butter knife to gently cut into the edge of the masa, making a little pocket.
  • Chop up and heat chicken from Sukhi’s Chicken Coconut Curry with Mango and mix with red onions, cotija cheese, and cilantro.
  • Stuff mixture into masa pouches, garnish with any remaining cotija and your favorite hot sauce, and enjoy!
