Okay, I'm kind of a dummy (Masa Harina)

I needed some for a chili recipe and now I have an entire bag. I probably could have subbed flour, but no, I went and bought a bag of something I don't know what to do with...

Ideas??? Recipes???

You can make corn tortillas. It might work in place of cornmeal for tamale pie.

Tamales, corn tortillas! If all else fails, plastic bag it and put it in the freezer.

I did the same thing, Jeni, and now I have a lifetime supply for chili. There's just no substitution quite like Masa Harina for chili. I made tamales once (all by myself) and I'll never be doing that again.....OMG one of the worse experience of my life that lasted till 3am. I hear it's fun with a group, but I'll pass. I think it will keep dang near forever if it's taken care of properly......think I'll just will it to my kids.

Tamales are a lot more fun with a group Kayelle. I had the same experience of trying to do them on my own. It took me almost three days, I had to sleep sometime

Okay - good to know on the tamales...almost went in that direction.

YES it is the instant kind, I had to look...does that make things better?

I'm so glad I'm not the only one...thank you!

It just reduces the cooking time, if it doesn't have any extra ingredients in it, I.e. baking powder, salt...you can use it as a flour.
