Gluten Free Corn Tortillas


2 cups
Masa Harina
1½ cups
hot water
1 teaspoon

Make sure the water is hot to properly activate the Masa Harina. I use a non stick pan to cook the tortillas without any oil or butter. You can store the tortillas in a ziplock plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or longer in the freezer. You can heat them in a pan. Also in the microwave using a ziplock bag or cloth to cover them.

  1. Put the 2 cups of Masa Harina in a bowl.

  2. Add the salt to the bowl and stir thoroughly.

  3. Add 1 cup of hot water and stir again with a wooden spoon before adding the additional ½ cup of hot water.

  4. Knead the dough into a consistent ball.

  5. Cover with a clean kitchen towel. Rest the dough for 1 hour.

  6. Create balls the size of a golf ball.

  7. Heat a large pan.

  8. Cover the tortilla press with plastic and press the tortilla.

  9. Cook the tortilla on medium to high heat for about 1 minute until the tortillas get some color. Turn and heat the other side of the tortilla for also 1 minute.

  10. Store in a tortilla warmer or keep in a clean kitchen cloth.
