Today we talk game day eats, Huaraches! We are testing recipes for our Super Bowl Fiesta and I knew this was the perfect time to try out huaraches.
Huaraches are flattened ovals of masa shaped to resemble the sole of a Huarache (Mexican sandal).
Similar to a sope, hauaraches can be served small as an appetizer of made large enough to resemble a pizza.
Traditional huaraches are filled with beans and fried until crisp.
These huaraches easily come together with the help of Maseca and can be rolled out in any size. Cook over a hot griddle and your set.
Topping options are endless: beans, cheese, rajas, salsa, nopales, fajitas, carne asada. etc.
These were a hit in our house, slathered with refried beans, rajas de poblano and onions, a sprinkle of cotijo cheese. Enjoy!
- 2 cups of MASECA®
- 1¼ cups of water
- ½ tsp. of salt
- In a bowl, mix the MASECA® flour with water and salt, until dough is smooth and doesn't stick to your hands.
- If dough feels dry, add teaspoons of water, one at a time.
- Once dough is ready, cover with a damp towel so it does not get dry.
- Divide the dough into nine equal portions and form into little balls.
- Take two plastic sheets to flatten the little balls with your hands, forming a huarache.
- Cook each huarache on a hot griddle, for two minutes on each side.
