Ten (gluten-free) Things You Can Make With a Bag of Masa Flour




Savory Meals

Tortillas. This is obvious, right? You can use a press or a couple of sheets of waxed paper and a heavy pot for pressing. I love my big cast-iron griddle for cooking 3-4 at a time.

Arepas. These are a bit like a thick tortilla, but smaller in diameter. They are cooked like a tortilla, but can be finished in the oven if needed. Once cooked, slice them carefully and fill with cheese, beans, vegetables, or meat.

Gorditas. This is a fried bread that exists somewhere between a tortilla and an arepa. I have seen various recipes, some including a leavening agent and others not.

Tamales. These can definitely be time-consuming and so are generally saved for special occasions. They are, however, delicious. And when making them in large quantities for a crowd it doesn’t seem like that much more work than any other meal.

Tamale Pie. This is what I serve our family when we’re in the mood for tamales. It’s got a similar flavor to tamales with a spicy filling contrasted by a sweet and rich corn crust. It’s much more doable as a weeknight supper, though.

Tlacoyos. Once again, masa dough envelopes flavorful fillings in this Mexican street food.

Breakfast, Bread, Dessert, and Drinks

Cookies. These masa cookies are a wonderful simple cookie for those who are gluten-free. Traditionally they are topped with a sometimes hard-to-find sugar, but I think that might be replaceable with a sprinkling of sucanat or other unrefined sugars.

Corn Cakes. I make these for breakfast probably once a week. I like them as a last minute addition because the masa has been nixtamalized, which eliminates the need for soaking or sprouting. My basic recipe is to beat two eggs in a bowl, add 2 cups of milk, a pinch of salt, enough masa to make a batter, and 2 teaspoons of baking powder.

Cornbread. This is another great last minute bread when I’ve forgotten to start sourdough bread or soak a regular corn bread. It is definitely intense in corn flavor and lacks the sweetness of the cake-like cornbreads that come from a mix. But it is delicious served warm with butter.

Atole. This Mexican beverage combines the sweetness of corn with milk and cinnamon for a warming and comforting beverage.
