Masa harina vs. Goya's "Masarepa"?

travelmad478 | Jun 24, 2007 10:50 AM

My humitas recipe calls for masa harina, but all I could find in my lame Pathmark was something called Masarepa, by Goya, which is also labeled Pre-cooked Harina de Maiz Amarilla. It's just fine ground corn meal enriched with thiamine/niacin etc. There is a recipe on the back for arepas that uses just this corn meal, salt, and water.

Can I use this for the humitas, or should I go searching for real masa harina?
