Basic Masa Dough

00h 35m
Ingredients
  • 4 1/2  cups AMAIZE premium sifted maize meal
  • 3 3/4  cups cold water
  • 1 1/2  cups cold lard or vegetable shortening
  • 1  tablespoon Kosher salt
Directions
  1. Combine AMAIZE and water in a large bowl and mix with your hands until ingredients are evenly incorporated and dough is moist throughout; set aside.
  2. Combine lard or shortening and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and beat on high speed until shiny and white in color, about 2 minutes. Reduce speed to medium high and add dough in handfuls, letting it mix in before adding more, until all the dough has been added, about 2 minutes. Continue beating until ingredients are well combined and a smooth, soft dough has formed, about 1 minute more.
  3. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 2 days before using.
