• 3 1/2 C masa harina (corn flour)

• 1/2 C all-purpose flour

• 2 tsp baking powder

• 1 tsp kosher salt

• 1/4 C lard or vegetable shortening, melted, or vegetable oil

• 2 1/4 C warm water

In a mixing bowl, combine masa harina, flour, baking powder and salt; whisk to incorporate. Drizzle lard evenly over dry ingredients and whisk again until mixture forms pea-sized balls. Scrape dough from whisk. Add water and, using a wooden spoon, mix to thoroughly combine. Scrape dough from spoon and, using your hands, knead dough briefly, just until it comes together in a smooth ball, about 2 minutes. Cover bowl with a towel and let rest for 15 minutes before proceeding with any recipe.
