Latin American Street Food's Bean Stuffed Masa Cakes
3 c masa harina
3 1/4-3 1/2 c warm water
1 1/2 c refried beans (I used canned)
Mix the masa harina and the water together. Let rest for 10 minutes. Heat a griddle to about 375 degrees, then wet your hands and divide the masa into 12 portions. Place 1 heaping tablespoon of the beans in to the center of each masa portion, then form a circle around the beans. Flatten the cake with your wet hands, being careful to not expose the beans. Cook the cakes on the griddle, about 5 minutes per side. Serve with the slaw and salsa, or whatever toppings you desire.
