Corn Tortillas

2 cups corn masa flour, I use Maseca

1 1/4 cup water

1/4 tsp salt

tortilla press

two pieces of plastic wrap

 

Combine all ingredients into a bowl and knead for two minutes to form a soft dough. 

If dough feels dry, add a spoonful of water at a time. 

Roll into little two inch balls and cover with moist towel.

Heat a small non stick pan or flat griddle over med/high heat. 

Place a piece of plastic wrap on the bottom of the press, place a dough ball on it, cover with the other piece of plastic wrap and press down hard. 

Carefully place the tortilla on the hot pan and cook for 50-60 seconds on each side.
