This little ditty is the BOMB! Grab a jar of Wow-A Chihuahua and have a healthy and flavorful taste! You can make the cakes to size. Small for a party or appetizer or big like a pancake for dinner.

Ingredients:

Fresh salsa

1 pint of heirloom or red cherry tomato’s finely chopped and drained in a colander

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

2 scallions (green onion) finely chopped

1 teaspoon (more if you like it hot) of Wow-A Chihuahua

1/2 of a white or sweet onion medium size finely chopped

Juice of 1/2 of a fresh squeezed lime

Mix everything together and pop in the refrigerator while you make the corncakes.

Corncakes:

1 cup Masa Harina aka corn flour

1 Tablespoon Wow-a Chihuahua

1/3 cup all purpose flour

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/3 cup Queso Fresco – white crumbly Mexican cheese

1 cup warm water 

Crema Mexicana or sour cream

Diced avocado is also optional

Mix Masa Harina, flour, Wow-A chihuahua, baking powder, queso fresco, in a medium bowl with a whisk. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of EVOO over top of mixture and stri to form a course meal with some pea sized pieces. add 1 cup WARM water and stir until dough forms. Divide dough into 16 balls and flatten to form a 2″ pancake. I made these as a main course so made them the size of a medium pancake. Heat EVOO or Canola if you prefer, in a skillet. Add cakes and cook until they set and are golden brown about 2 to 3 minutes. Brush cakes with a little oil then flip and finish cooking another 2 to 3 minutes. Top the corncakes with the salsa, (avocado if desired) crema Mexicana, and a dash of Wow-A Chihuahua. Then indgulge yourself.
