Corn Tortillas

These little tortillas were so simple to make, it isn’t really even a recipe! You can buy the corn flour you need at your grocery store or mexican market. The corn flour, called masa harina, is a flour that has been treated with lime, which makes it more nutritious and easier to digest. By following the directions on the bag of corn flour, you can quickly & easily make your own fresh corn tortillas.

    I used to buy Maseca and make my own by using the rolling pin method, but I wasn't very good at making circles back then.
    I may have to buy another bag of Maseca Masa Harina again to give it another go.
    They certainly rolled up better than the store bought Mission tortillas. Those are either too hot to handle when they're flexible, or they're easily cracked when they're cool.

    Hi there,
    While I appreciate that you like my corn tortilla instructions well enough to write about them on your own website, I would ask that if you do so you, 1) provide a link to the source recipe on my site (not the print page) which is and 2) write the instructions in your own words.
    Thank you so much for your consideration.
