Homemade Corn Tortillas

  • Yield: 10-12 tortillas 1x



  • 2 cups Masa Harina
  • 1 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Measure out Masa into a medium bowl. Dissolve salt in the warm water. Pour warm water into masa, stirring and kneading until dough comes together. Dough should be soft but not sticky. I typically use around 1 1/3 cup of water. Cover and set aside for at least a half hour.
  2. Preheat griddle or pan to medium heat.
  3. After dough has rested, take golf-ball size portions out. Place between two pieces of parchment paper, and flatten out with tortillas press. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side. Cover done tortillas with a damp towel.
