This was my first time making tortillas and I could not believe how easy it was!! I will continue making my own. They are quick and so fresh.
This is the main ingredient. Masa corn flour. I got it at Walmart and it was less then $1.50 for this bag!
I bought this tortilla press from Amazon, it was around $15. I recommend having one for this. It makes them the perfect size and shape.
All I did was mix equal parts flour and water and a little bit of salt…that’s it! Mix it until it looks kind of like play doh.
Next I rolled them into approximately 1” size balls. You can cover them with a damp towel to keep them moist while working.
The directions recommend you use plastic sheets on both sides of the dough ball when pressing so I cut a zip lock bag into two sheets and used that.
The fun part, press down and…
A perfect tortilla!
All you do is cook them on the stovetop. I used a non stick flat pan. Cook for 30-45 seconds on each side.
I stacked them while making more and I kept them covered with a damp cloth.
They came out amazing! Next I’m going to try flour tortillas 🙂
