• For about 16 corn tortillas: follow instructions on the bag as follows~ shopping list
  • 2 cups masa flour (loose packed) shopping list
  • 1/4 tsp salt shopping list
  • 1 1/4 cups water shopping list
  • ~tip... you can add some chopped cilantro and a bit of lime juice to the dough for an even better flavor shopping list
  • In a bowl mix ingredients until the dough comes together about 2 minutes. shopping list
  • If the dough feels dry add a TBS of water at a time. You want to knead it a bit... for a minute or so. It will be the consistency of sandy play dough. shopping list
  • Divide dough into 16 parts. Cover with a damp towel. If you have a tortilla press, line it with 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Place each ball between the plastic wrap and press until tortilla measures about 5 to 6 in in diameter. Peel plastic wrap CAREFULLY. If it tears just press together again to seal. If you are careful, it just peels off. shopping list
  • If you don't have a tortilla press do what I do and roll the balls between 2 sheets of plastic wrap using a rolling pin. shopping list
  • Preheat a skillet on med -high. You may want to heat 2 skillets if you can work quickly like I did to speed the process up a bit. Cook tortillas one a at a time for 50 seconds or so . shopping list
  • Turn on second side and cook for an additional 50 secs or so. shopping list
  • Cover tortillas...I usually cover with plastic wrap so that the heat steams them up a bit and they do not dry out. Use in your favorite dish...enchiladas tacos, etc. shopping list

How to make it

  • Homemade Corn Tortillas.... I love making my own corn tortillas with out the preservatives that is usually added to the store bought ones. They are really easy to do especially if you have a tortilla press. I don't.... so it might take a bit longer, but then you get an authentic "rustic" look to them! Really, all you need is a bag of MASA flour and you are good to go.
