1/2 cup grated Cheddar or Monterey Jack or a combination of both
2 ounces grated Cheddar or Monterey cheese (for garnish)
Crust: Mix the dry ingredients together, then combine them with the chicken
broth or water.
Beat the lard until fluffy, then beat the Masa Harina into it.
Line the bottom and 2 inches of the sides of a well-greased
shallow casserole dish with between 1/8 and 1/4 inch of the dough.
Filling: Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine all ingredients. Spoon the filling over the dough, then
spread a thin layer of dough on top. The best way to do this is
to pat out manageable pieces of the dough and place them over the
filling like a patchwork quilt.
Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
Five minutes before the pie is done, sprinkle additional cheese on the top.
