Cuisine: Mexican

  • 1 pound of fresh-ground corn masa for corn or 1¾ cups masa harina for flour

  • 1 pinch of salt.

  2. Add water a little at a time and begin to knead.
  3. Continue to hand knead until you have obtained a good soft consistency that is not sticky.
  4. Cover with a cloth and let the dough stand 10 minutes.
  5. Pre-heat a lightly greased frying pan.
  6. Take about 1 – 1 ½ spoonfuls of the corn dough at a time; hand roll it into a small ball.

If you use a roller: Place the ball of corn dough on a sheet of plastic then place another on top. Use a roller to flatten it out. It should be about 3.5 inches in diameter.
  8. Place a lightly humid cloth on a large tray where you can begin placing the tortillas.
  9. Cook the tortillas on each side until done.
  10. Serve hot, wrapped in a nice cloth to preserve warmth.
