Hamburger Masa

1/2 lb lean ground beef
1/8 cup masa corn flour
1/2 tbsp chorizo
1 cup water
1/2 cup milk (evap milk or powdered milk granules okay)
salt to taste
pepper to taste
optional: 3/4 cup frozen mixed veggies; or 3/4 cup bean sprouts; or 1/2 onion, chopped; or 1/2 cup diced potatoes.


Brown and crumble the beef in a nonstick skillet. Do not drain off the fat. Add the corn flour and the seasonings to the cooked meat. Stir and cook about 5 minutes more, until oil is absorbed and flour is browned.

Add enough water/milk to form a thick sauce. Once the sauce is formed, other ingredients can be added, such as frozen mixed vegetables, chopped onions, bean sprouts, whatever. Cover and cook 5 more minutes or until other added ingredients are fork tender.

Serve with shredded lettuce (chiffonade style) and salsa on the side.
