Corn Tortilla Recipe

makes 10-15 7" tortillas

Tools needed
  • ¼ measuring cup
  • Plastic wrap 
  • Large dinner plate or tortilla press 
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • Non-stick skillet 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups masa harina
  • ½ teaspoons salt 
  • 1 ½ cups hot water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Instructions
  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. 
  4.  Heat oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Place tortilla in skillet. Cook until golden brown spots start to form and flip over to repeat on the other side. Place freshly-made tortilla inside paper towels to lock in the moisture while other tortillas are made.
