Alanís Kitchen Tip:
Masa harina is Mexican corn flour. It is made from corn that has been soaked in lime, then finely ground into flour.  It is like corn meal, but much finer, and it can be found in most supermarkets in the ethnic or baking section.  Masa harina is used to make corn tortillas and as a thickener in many chilis and soups.
