  • Summary

    • 5 ounces (2/3 cup) fresh pork lard, chilled
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 scant teaspoon salt
    • 2 cups coarsely ground (1 pound) fresh masa, or 1 3/4 cups masa harina mixed with 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons hot water, cooled to room temperature
    • 2/3 cup chicken, beef, or vegetable stock, preferably homemade
    • 4 ounces dried corn husks
    • 6 large dried New Mexico chiles, stems removed, seeded, and torn into 4 pieces
    • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
