Ingredients

2 cups masa harina

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup warm water

24 beef cocktail franks

Directions

  1. In a bowl combine the masa harina and salt slowly adding the water until the dough can be rolled into a ball. Knead the dough on a floured surface for 5 minutes or until smooth. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and allow to rest for 1 hour.
  2. Separate the dough into 24 equal pieces rolling them into little balls. Using a rolling pin roll out the dough so that it is about 1/2-inch thick. Place a cocktail frank on the edge of the dough and roll up tucking the ends underneath the frank. Repeat the process until you've used up all of the dough and franks.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place franks on a sheet pan and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Serve with a side of spicy mustard.
  5. Cook's note: Masa harina is found in the Latin food section of your grocery store. The cocktail franks can be frozen for up to 3 months.
