How to make it

  • in bowl: combine the flour, cornmeal, and salt
  • in another bowl: combine beaten eggs, oil and water
  • pour the egg/water mixture slowly into the flour/cornmeal mixture stir.
  • this helps prevent lumps
  • you may need a little more water.. the batter will be very thin. like a crepe batter
  • this recipe call for the use of an iron skillet but a heavy bottomed frying pan should work just fine.
  • use a 8 - 10 inch frying pan.. wipe with a very little amount of oil
  • preheat the frying pan over medium heat
  • pour in 1/4 cup of batter ( stir it first the cornmeal sinks)
  • tilt and rotate the pan to make a 'pancake' about 6 inches across
  • allow a few mins to become lightly brown then flip over and lightly brown the other side. don't over cook or they will become too stiff to roll
  • keep tortillas warm until ready to use by stacking them with paper towels in between them and cover them in a low oven

    too much eggs in there for my taste. Next time I'll try 2 eggs instead. Thank you!

    I made these with Gluten Free flour mix instead of flour and they are great. It is hard to roll out GF doughs and this was easy, quick and tasty. Thanks

    If I'm ever brave enough to attempt making my own tortillas, I will give this one a try! I do love fresh tortillas, and was spoiled when I lived in Texas, as you could get them daily at any bakery.
