Let's Make It
1
Mix masa, flour, baking powder and salt. Add shortening; mix with hands until well blended. Gradually add water, mixing after each addition until ingredients are well blended and mixture forms a ball. Divide dough into 14 equal-sized smaller balls; cover until ready to use.
2
Flatten each ball into 5-inch round. Heat oil in heavy 12-inch skillet on medium-high heat to between 350°F and 365°F. Add gorditas; fry 3 min. or until crisp and golden brown on both sides; drain. Cool slightly.
3
Cut a small slit in top of each gordita. Gently pull apart. Fill with remaining ingredients.
