How to make it
- in a large bowl, mix together, masa, salt, and enough water to form dough...dough shouldnt be too sticky..knead dough for a little bit, and form into golf ball sized balls. then I use a mexican corn tortilla press, and to keep the dough from sticking, i like to use an opened zip lock bag, i just cut it open except for the bottom of the bag, and lay it in the press, one side of the bag on the bottom, then tortila dough then the other side of the bag on top...press gently with press to form tortilla....gently remove tortilla off of ziplock bag, and set aside. continue with the rest of the tortilla balls....
- Heat a shallow pan with about 1 1/2 inches of oil....add cheese to one side of tortilla and fold over like a calzone, and fold in edges to seal...repeat with all....once oil is hot fry until golden brown and drain on paper towels...Top with lettuce, salsa, sour cream and avocados!!!mmmmm enjoy! these are addicting!

Thanks so much for this recipe. Mmm I love the idea of slipping avocado in. Have you made the tortillas without a press? I thought I might give it a whirl. Love a challenge.tablescape in loved it
