4 Russet potatoes peeled 2 cups Maseca* corn masa flour ¼ tsp. Salt kosher ¼ tsp. Baking powder 2 ¼ cups Warm water 1 cup Salsa Verde 1 cup Salsa Roja 1 tbsp. Vegetable oil Optional
Set a large cast-iron pan with oil. Once the oil is hot add the masa rounds and let cook for 3 min. and then flip. Let cook for 3 -4 min more until brown spots appear on the gordita and it is hard to the touch. Then, using a sharp serrated knife cut a slit in the edge about half-way around its circumference, making a sort of pocket. Fill each gordita with the desired potato mixture. Serve with sliced avocado or guacamole.
These gorditas can also be fried in a shallow pan with oil at 350F. Fry 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown, then cut, and fill.
