  • 3 cups masa harina (special corn flour)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups warm water

  1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl -- adding the water slowly, until dough is tender
  2. Knead about 5 min (until dough can form balls)
  3. Cover with cloth & let stand for 1 hour
  4. Divide the dough into balls -- the size of a small lemon
  5. Roll out each ball using the rolling pin on a floured surface until very thin
  6. Grill tortilla in a heavy-bottomed skillet or on griddle over high heat 
  7. Turn with spatula and cook the other side when edges begin to dry 
  8. Cook other side until it begins to fluff up -- 4 to 5 min for each tortilla
  9. Wrap in cloth or tortilla warmer to keep tortilla fresh and warm
  10. Serve immediately
