Homemade Corn Tortillas
I FINALLY broke down and made homemade corn tortillas last night, to celebrate our 10 year anniversary! They were SO easy and very yummy! Just like the ones we eat in Guatemala! :)
2 cups masa harina (make sure it only has corn and lime - the lime is important!)
1 1/4 cup water
1. Mix together masa harina and water until dough starts to form. I ended up having to add a lot more water than this...not sure why...but I just kept adding water until the dough came together.
2. Pull dough together into disk/ball shape. Let dough sit for 15 minutes.
3. For each tortilla, pull off handful of dough, roll between two pieces of wax paper, and heat on skillet over high heat for about 30 seconds to 1 minute for each side, until it starts to lightly brown.
