This is a *delicious* sweet Mexican pudding, you may reduce the amount of sugar but I prefer it sweet -- do not subsitiute the masa harina (Mexican corn flour) using anything else will change the texture and it will not be the same, masa harina is easily found in the Mexican section and baking sections of you grocery store, Walmart also carries it --- you will love this!

I too have been searching for this recipe for quite some time since I had it at a Mexican Restaurant back home in California. This is as good if not better. I did reduce the sugar slightly to 1/4 cup - and it was plenty sweet. Perfect side for any Mexican dish! Thanks so much!
This was it!! I had been looking for a recipe for this since I had eaten it on the west coast. Just perfect. The perfect side for a mexican meal, sweet to go w/ the spicy. Just perfect, follow recipe exactly.
