DIRECTIONS

  • In a food processor or blender, process the corn, melted butter, egg and milk until pureed.
  • Add masa harina and sugar and pulse to combine (If you are not using a food processor, remove corn mixture from the blender to a large bowl and then add and combine the ingredients).
  • Let the mixture stand at room temperature for twenty minutes.
  • Add the cheese and incorporate them into the batter.
  • Set a large skillet or griddle over medium heat and add the butter and oil and heat till the foam subsides.
