Ingredients

1.25 cups masa harina (corn flour)
1.5 Tbsp cold butter
1/2 cup corn
3 Tbsp milk
ground pepper
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup chicken stock, heated (you probably won't use all of it but it's good to have in case)

In a food processor, process corn, masa, butter, baking powder and pepper until butter is incorporated. Add milk and pulse process to just combine.

Mix chicken stock with masa mixture until a smooth, spreadable--not pourable--dough forms. I think I ended up using about 3/4 cup stock tonight. Add more stock as you feel necessary.

Notes

Very good! A bit too spicy for the kids, but I tend to have a heavy hand with the cayenne. Did not have any salsa on hand, so I used a can of Rotel ... again with the extra zest. I should have drained it better before adding to the meat mixture as we ended up with a lot of excess liquid in the finished dish.

I will be making this again. The masa topping was perfect.
