The first part of this recipe makes masa dough, which is used in many delicious recipes, not just for making tortillas!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
240g masa harina flour
250ml hot water
2 tablespoons olive oil

Method

  1. Place the flour in a bowl with the water and olive oil. Mix together to form a dough and then let rest for 20 minutes before using.
  2. When ready, roll the dough into walnut-sized balls. Using a tortilla press, flatten the dough balls to form your tortillas. (It is easier to peel your tortillas from the tortilla press by lining each side of the press with baking paper.)
  3. If you don‘t have a tortilla press, sandwich the masa dough balls between 2 pieces of baking paper and roll out with a rolling pin to 2 mm thick and 15 cm in diameter.
  4. To cook, place a lightly oiled frying pan over a high heat. Place the tortillas in the pan, one at a time, cooking them for about 2 minutes on each side or until the edges begin to colour. Wrap your cooked tortillas in a clean tea towel to keep warm.
