Whisk together masa harina, flour, and salt. Stir in water to thoroughly combine. Knead dough just until it comes together into a smooth ball, about 2 minutes. Transfer dough to a bowl, cover with a towel, and let rest 15 minutes.

Form dough into 12 golf ball-sized portions using wet hands or a #20 scoop (heaping 3 Tbsp.). Place balls on a baking sheet and cover with a damp towel while preparing filling.


Scooping the dough makes for easy portioning. If using the #20 scoop, make sure they are generous scoops to get 12 golf ball-sized portions.
