Homemade corn tortillas are so delicious, you'll wonder why you ever bought them! Serve with warm beans, veggies and fresh salsa.
Ingredients:
2 cups instant masa harina
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
1 1/2 cups warm water
Directions:
1 Measure the masa harina and salt into a large bowl. Cut the butter into tablespoon-sized pieces and work it into the dry ingredients using the back of a wooden spoon.
2 Add the water and mix with a wooden spoon or with your hands until a soft dough forms. Cover the dough with a clean cloth and let rest for 5 minutes.
3 Divide the dough into 12 pieces and roll each piece into a ball.
4 To keep the dough from sticking to the tortilla press, put a piece of plastic wrap (or a plastic bag) on the bottom surface of the press Put a ball of dough in the center of the plastic.
5 Then place another piece of plastic wrap on the top of the dough. Press the dough flat in the press.
6 Pick up the tortilla with the plastic on both sides. Peel off one piece of plastic (which can be reused).
7 Flip the tortilla off of the plastic onto a hot griddle. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until the bottom of the tortilla becomes golden.
8 Flip the tortilla and press lightly with a spatula, which will make the tortilla puff slightly. Cook for one to two minutes more, until the tortilla appears to be done.
9 ENJOY!
