Tools needed

Ingredients
  • 2 cups masa harina

  1. Combine masa, salt and hot water in a bowl and mix until the dough forms. Form dough into balls using a ¼ measuring cup. 
  2. Spread a piece of plastic wrap on the counter, and wrap a separate piece completely around a circular plate. Then spray the counter and plate with non-stick cooking spray. 
  3. Place the dough ball on the counter, and press with the bottom of the plate into a 7 inch tortilla. Repeat until all tortillas are made. You can also use a tortilla press for this process.
