PANUCHOS CON QUESO Y FLOR DE CALABASA

Panuchos
Corn Empanadas’ with Zucchini Flowers and Black Beans
Recipe from Amor y Tacos by Deborah M. Schneider

Panuchos are empanadas made from fresh corn masa, fried until crispy and served topped with black beans, crema and salsa. This recipe calls for a combination of cheeses mixed with fresh flor de calabasa (zucchini flowers,) though filling options are limitless. Lard is often used for frying, but vegetable oil or shortening may be substituted. For a leaner version, cook on a lightly oiled griddle, in which case they become quesadillas. Makes 12 panuchos.

Spicy Masa (recipe follows)
16 Large zucchini flowers (see note)
5 oz Shredded Oaxaca or jack cheese
3 oz Cotixa cheese, crumbled
