What are Corn Tortillas

Corn tortillas are a type of flatbread made from masa, a dough made from finely ground corn.

Corn tortillas are popular in many Latin American countries and are typically served with fillings such as cheese, beans, or meat. While they can be eaten plain, they are often fried or grilled to create a crispy texture. Corn tortillas are also used to make dishes such as enchiladas and tacos.

Unlike flour tortillas, which are made with wheat flour, corn tortillas are gluten-free.

Featured Ingredients

Masa Harina

Masa Harina is a type of flour made from dried and ground corn. It is used in traditional Mexican cuisine for making tortillas, tamales, and other dishes.

The word “masa” means dough in Spanish, and “harina” means flour.

Masa Harina is made by soaking dried corn in water and lime to soften the kernels. The softened kernels are then ground into a fine flour. This flour is used to make dough that can be shaped and cooked into various dishes.

Masa Harina has a light, slightly sweet flavor and a moist texture.

  • Press the dough using the tortilla press and flatten to your preferred thickness.
  • Remove flattened dough from press.
  • Place a skillet on medium or medium/high heat. Do not add any oil.
  • Add flattened dough to skillet, and cook approximately 30 to 45 seconds. Flip and cook the other side for approximately 1 minute. Flip again and flatten any bubbles using a spatula and cook for 30 seconds. Repeat with the other side and cook another 10 seconds.
  • Place tortilla in a pie plate and cover with a towel for at least 15 minutes. This will soften the tortillas.
