Fresh Corn Tortillas

Have you bought that 5 lb sack of Maseca, made your tamales for the holidays and still have left over mix? Make fresh home made Corn Tortillas with the left over Maseca corn flour mix.

2 cups of Maseca Corn Flour Mix
1 1/2 cups of water
1/3 t salt

Mix the salt with the cornflour mix, make a well in the center, add water to the well and mix the dough with clean hands for 1 - 2 minutes to make a pliable dough.

Pinch off dough to equal the size of a walnut and put into a Tortilla Press or roll out between two sheets of plastic film. Gently peel off the top layer of plastic and flip the tortilla onto a hot griddle. Cook tortilla for 20 seconds and flip the tortilla and 30 seconds later flip it again. It is ready to be eaten with butter; filled with cheese and sauced to make enchiladas; filled with taco meat and a mix of shredded lettuce, tomatoes and cheese; or used simply as a scoop with your carne guisada or Huevos Rancheros.

Makes 18 corn tortillas. Freezes well.

Use to make Enchiladas or serve warm with butter.
