Superbowl Sunday is a special day in our house, not just because of the game, but also because my husband and I met on Superbowl Sunday. Sometimes we go to parties with friends, sometimes we stay at home, what’s always certain, while watching the game and enjoying the commercials even, a plate of yummy food is always at hand.  How about celebrating the game this year with a Latin flavor?

And I’m not just talking about salsa and chips, an American favorite already (of course salsas are always welcome, in fact try my delicious avocado salsa, it’s super easy to make), but rather other appetizers. How about taquitos, or empanadas, or tostadas? Let me show you the kind of thing I’m talking about:

Mulita Kora

Mulitas Kora

Ingredients

For the Mulitas

  • 4 cups MASECA® corn masa flour
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 1½ Tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 Tablespoons paprika
  • 2½ cups water
  • 3 cups shredded pork
  • 3 cups Mozzarella cheese, grated

To Serve

  • 2 cups refried beans sauce *
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, cut in strips
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 limes
  • 12 radishes
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1½ cups tomato sauce
  1. In a large bowl, combine MASECA® corn masa flour, salt, baking powder, paprika, and water. Knead to form dough. Make eight small balls of the same size and another eight of a slightly larger size.
  2. Flatten to make tortillas.
  3. Top center of smaller tortillas with shredded pork and cheese; cover with larger tortillas and seal edges.
  4. Fry mulitas in hot oil for 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. Pour refried bean sauce onto the mulitas. Cover with lettuce and warm tomato sauce. Garnish with onion slices, radishes, and lime wedges to taste. Add a touch of sour cream and cheese, and serve.

*Making a refried bean sauce is easy, here’s how: Drain your cooked beans and reserve the liquid to the side.  In a blender place a cup of the drained, cooked beans, add a little bit of the reserved liquid and blend, add liquid little by little until it reaches your desired consistency.  In a frying pan, add a Tablespoon of oil, when oil is heated add garlic and chopped onions,  keep ingredients moving in pan to prevent burning until onions are translucent (about 2 minutes)  Mix in blended beans, season to taste, and that’s it.

This just got me HUNGRY.

Can you substitute chicken for pork and still get good flavor?

Sure Jessica! I also used potato filling (potatoes, chopped tomato, onion, and parsely) for a meatless dish.

My question would have been the same as Jessica’s or even a veg. option since we don’t eat pork. But this looks delish! : )
