Masa Harina Salt Baking Powder Lard, Butter, Or Oil Warm Water Desired Fillings
Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl, stirring until well mixed. Cut the lard or butter into the dry ingredients until you have a coarse meal texture.
Pour the warm water in while mixing until you have a smooth dough that forms into a ball. Let the dough rest. Divide into 8 equal portions and roll dough into a ball shape, then gently press out into disc shapes.
Cook the gordita for 3-4 minutes on each side, until brown spots form. Using a serrated knife, slice the gordita on one side through the center creating a pocket in the middle.
Stuff with your desired filling and serve warm.
