Corn tortilla recipe
Makes about 10-12 servings
- 2 cups masa harina (corn flour)
- 1 ½ cups water
Combine masa harina with water. Mix until a soft dough is formed. Dough should be moist. Divide dough into 10-12 equally sized balls (slightly larger than a golf ball). Cover with a damp cloth so they stay moist.
To form the tortilla, take a gallon size zip lock bag, cut open side seams and remove one end so plastic opens into a rectangle sheet. Lay plastic wrap flat. Place a dough ball in the middle of one half of the plastic sheet and cover with the other half of plastic. You will press the dough ball into a six inch tortilla using the flat bottom of a soup bowl or pressing with the palm of your hand.
Heat a skillet on medium heat. Carefully remove tortilla from plastic. Cook tortilla for 30 seconds on both sides or longer if you desire tortilla to be browned. Cover tortillas to keep warm.
