Simply said in the name, I eat this often and once had to do a cooking project for class so I made mass quantities of these. I got the original recipe off of this site, but then talked to a native Venezuelan who taught me how to really make them. Fill them with anything and they taste good! updated 6/17/08 sorry about changing it to multible servings don't worry you'll want to eat more than one (atleast 2) at a time and I think they should freeze also they can be reheated in the microwave

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups superfine white cornmeal, P. A. N. is what I mean but the zaar dosen't recognize it this is a Venezuelan corn flour, masa hari
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 2 12 cups water, if using masa harina the amount is enough to make it stick together but not much more
  • cheddar cheese (or other whatever you want)


  1. Mix the P. A. N., salt, and water.
  2. Form into a circular patty shape.
  3. Dry fry it.
  4. Cut it like a pita.
  5. Put in your cheese or other things.

Just a comment, but I do hope to try this soon. I think you meant to describe the masa harina as "some type of corn flour" )not corn flower). i just wanted to clear up any confusion that might cause for anyone who really doesn't know. :)
