Homemade tortillas may be a labor of love, but boy are they worth it. With the help of a tortilla press, the task of making your own tortillas is much less daunting than it seems. In terms of ingredients, the list is actually quite simple– our recipe only calls for masa harina (a corn flour made from ground nixtamalized corn), kosher salt, and hot water. While it’s important to let the dough stand before pressing and cooking, lightly cover with plastic wrap to ensure that the dough does not dry out and crack. If you have a comal (a flat griddle specifically used to cook tortillas), this is the time to use it, but if not, a cast-iron skillet will do for cooking your tortillas.These homemade corn tortillas are thicker, softer, and more fragrant than store-bought tortillas. They can be used to prepare tacos, enchiladas, tostadas, or tortilla chips– the opportunities are endless. You’ll never want to go back to bagged, grocery-store tortillas after tasting these tender, fresh, homemade versions. You’re sure to impress any guests with your mastery of this classic recipe. Pair with some homemade salsa and a margarita and you’re good to go for any party.
