  1. In a bowl, combine the corn masa flour and salt, then mix. Add in the water in thirds, mixing with your hands. Once all the water is in, mix with hands for 7-10 minutes. Wash your hands then cover the masa with a damp paper towel and let sit for 5-10 minutes. 
  2. Take a golf ball size of masa and roll in between your hands then flatten to make a disk about 1/4 inch thick. You can use a tortilla press if you have one! 
  3. Add refried beans to the center and fold in to create a triangle or tlacoyo shape. 
  4. To a pan over medium/low heat, lightly drizzle oil in pan and cook for about 2 minutes on each side. Enjoy with salsa, crema & avocado!
