  • 1 bamboo steamer
  • 1 large mixing bowl


  • 1 cup masa harina
  • ½ cup bacon grease
  • 5/8 cup chicken broth
  • ½ tbsp baking powder
  • 2 jalapenos finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • salt
  • 1 tsp cumin

Other Stuff

  • sour cream
  • 20 corn husks


  • Combine masa harina, bacon grease, baking powder, chicken broth, cumin, garlic, salt, and jalapenos in a large mixing bowl. Stir until thoroughly combined.
  • Put a corn husk on a plate or flat surface. Put 2 tablespoons of batter in the corn husk, in the shape of a triangle.
  • Close the corn husk so that it stays in a triangular shape and locks the batter in.
  • Tie a string or long strip of corn husk around the triangle, so that it doesn't open during steaming. Place in the steaming basket and repeat until you are out of batter.
  • Steam for 1 hour. Serve the corundas with sour cream and red salsa.
