Homemade Corn Tortillas
If you want to learn how to make corn tortillas, you have arrived at the right place. You only need 3 ingredients! So easy and tasty!
- 2 cups of Masa Harina(add more if dough is too wet)
- 1 1/2 cups of warm water
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
In a medium mixing bowl, add 1/2 teaspoon of salt to 2 cups of masa and mix until combined.
Slowly add warm water and knead. It might take some trial and error to get the consistency right. If after kneading for a few minutes and the dough still sticks to your hands, it's too wet. Add a little more mesa. We found the dough to be perfect right before it became too wet and sticky.
Let dough rest for about 5-10 minutes allowing the moisture to incorporate into the masa.
Using a press, cast iron skillet or cast iron pizza pan, flatten the dough ball into 4-5 inch rounds.
Pre-heat flat top or cast iron pizza pan on medium-high heat.
Place tortillas on flat top or heat source, flipping it in the first 10 minutes. Cook each side for approx. 2 minutes or until desired browning is achieved.
