One of the recipes we learned (all ingredients can be bought from Tio Pablo)

Tyacoyos Con Salsa Verde

1 cup tortilla masa mixed with enough water to make a slightly dry dough

1 tbsp butter

1 tsp sea salt

1 cup cooked fava beans (any cooked mashed beans will do)

Oil for pan

2 c Salsa de Tomato Verde

1/2 c finely chopped white onion

1/2 cup grated cheese

Mix masa dough with butter kneading to make a smooth dough. Divide into 12 equal balls. Press flat into tortilla oval shape (with a press or rolling pin)

Spread a teaspoon of the beans into the centre, leaving the edges clean and then fold in half pressing the edges closed.

Have ready a hot lightly greased skillet or griddle. Fry until golden on both sides

Salsa Verde

2 serrano chiles

1 lb tomatillos

1/4 white onion

1/2 c coriander

sea salt to taste

Place tomatillos and serranos in a saucepan with water to cover. Bring to boil and simmer for about 10 minutes  Refrigerate for as long as possible to merge flavours (overnight preferable)

Onion and coriander can be chopped and added at the end for more texture
