The gorditas are made with corn masa, I use Maseca which you can find at most of the super markets in the flour section. Following the instructions in the package I mixed 4 cups of corn flour (Maseca) with 2 1/2 cups of chicken broth mixed with some salsa. I use the chicken broth I have left after broiling the chicken breast I will use as the filling because I like the corn masa (flour) to have some flavor.
For the chicken filling I broiled 3 chicken breasts and cut the chicken in small pieces after cooked. In a hot skillet I added some olive oil with 3 cut plum tomatoes, 2 small onions and one serrano pepper. When the vegetables start to soften up I added the chicken and mixed them together. You can add salt and pepper to your taste.
Now you are ready to fill the gorditas and ENJOY !!!! You can also add some fresh salsa and sour cream when you serve them.
My kids also love when I just filled them up with cheese or a delicious mixture of poblano peppers, onions and cream. The combinations are endless and you will love to eat them too.
