Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
- 2 cups masa harina and 1 1/2 cups of warm water
- OR 1lb fresh masa
Mix masa harina and water together to form a dough. Knead for about one minute adding more water if necessary. Or use fresh masa.
Divide dough into 10-12 balls. They should be about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Press each tortilla in a tortilla press or roll out between two pieces of wax paper until it is about 5 1/2 to 6 inches across and very thin. Carefully place tortilla on a hot griddle and cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute on each side.
Tortillas cool quickly, so keep them warm in a tortilla warmer lined with paper towels to prevent condensation or cover them with a dish towel.
