  • Blend juice and annatto paste in blender until smooth. Heat dressing in medium skillet on medium-high heat. Add half the onions; cook and stir 3 min. Stir in meat; cook 5 min., stirring occasionally. Add juice mixture and zest; cook on medium-low heat 10 min. or until liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally.
  • Meanwhile, heat griddle on medium heat. Shape masa into 12 balls; flatten slightly. Place 1 Tbsp. cheese in center of each ball; fold in sides of dough to completely cover cheese. Roll balls into cylinders. Place 1 cylinder between 2 pieces of plastic wrap; press gently with tortilla presser to form 4-inch oval "boat." Repeat with remaining balls. Cook masa boats on griddle 2 min. on each side or until puffed.
  • Top masa boats with meat mixture, remaining onions and cilantro.

Special Equipment Needed


No time to make masa boats? Substitute warmed corn tortillas for the masa harina. Cook meat mixture as directed; spoon onto tortillas. Top with cheese, remaining onions and cilantro, then continue as directed.

Make Ahead

Meat mixture can be prepared ahead of time. Refrigerate up to 2 days to allow flavors to blend. When ready to serve, cook meat mixture in saucepan on medium-low heat until heated through before using as directed.

How to Prepare the Masa Dough

Add 3/4 cup water to 1-1/4 cups masa harina and 1/2 tsp. salt in medium bowl; mix with your hands until mixture forms soft dough.
