Basic, homemade corn tortillas


  • scant cup of masa harina found in the ethnic section of your grocery
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup hot water


  • Mix the masa harina together with the salt.
  • Stir in the hot water.
  • Keep stirring until a dough forms. Form it into a ball and let rest for 20 minutes.
  • After resting divide dough into 8 equal parts and form into balls. Let rest.
  • Press each ball with your tortilla press (I like to put parchment paper on it to help it not stick)
  • Grill on med-high heat for 30-45 seconds.
