Corn Tortilla

Corn Tortilla

Tortillas………………I love them,they are so versatile, you can use them any way you want,as sandwich wraps,tacos,burritos, quesadilla, tortilla chips, make them mini and you have a great base for appetizers.

Corn tortillas are really tasty, most recipes use masa harina,I don’t have that so I used regular corn flour with some white flour,to be honest,I don’t know if it is the same but it is really really really tasty.

You will need;

200g Corn Flour

200g all purpose flour

65g Butter

A pinch of Salt

Warm Water as needed

Combine the flours,butter and salt. Rub in the butter till it forms something that looks like bread crumbs.

Add water a little at a time and mix until you form a nice soft but firm dough.

Knead properly for about 10 min.

Let rest for about 30 min to 1 hour.

divided into 2 workable portions.

Roll into a log and cut it into equal portions.

You are going to need some more flour for rolling.

Roll each in between your palms to form a ball,then flatten it.

Flour your work surface and roll each dough into really thin sheets,lift and rotate in between rolling it so it does not stick to the surface.

You can make them into big circles

Roll it out and cut with a round cutter,I used the bowl of my food scale.Just place the round bowl or pot cover on the rolled out dough and cut with a small knife.

 …….sometimes,there are not so perfect.

you can cut into small circles too for appetizers or small bites.

Heat your skillet  and cook 1 at a time about 15 secs on each side.

 Wrap in kitchen towel after it is cooked to keep it warm.

You can freeze it too,so feel free to make a large batch. Just warm a bit in the oven or on a skillet to make it pliable before you use.
