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.
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.
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.
