      I made these a few weeks back and forgot to review...Instant masa subbed for cornmeal and I would next time definitely omit the sugar. I don't understand the purpose for that ingredient. Served with black beans, tossed salad and fresh fruit. Used a tortilla press to form and a stove top grill, too. Will make again! Thank you for posting!
