Ingredients

  • 2 cups Masa Harina
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups hot water

Instructions

  • In a medium sized bowl, mix together Masa Harina and salt. Pour in 1 1/2 cups hot water and mix. You don't want the dough to be dry or too sticky. If its dry, continue adding water one tablespoon at a time. The final dough should be firm and springy.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap and allow to rest for one hour.
  • Preheat well seasoned griddle over medium low heat. Divide dough into 12 equal portions. Using a tortilla press lined with wax paper or plastic wrap, flatten each tortilla one at a time and place on the hot griddle. Allow to cook for about 1 minute, then flip, cook for another minute, then transfer to a plate. Continue with remaining tortillas.
