One thing I will say about this shelter-in-place order: I sure am digging deep into my cabinets and using up ingredients that I didn't even remember that I had!
Ingredients makes about twenty 4" tortillas
- 3 C masa harina
- 2-1/4 C warm liquid (you can use water or stock)
- 1 t freshly ground salt
- 1 T olive oil
- corn meal for rolling
- oil for cooking
- Also needed: waxed paper or parchment paper, tortilla press (if you don't have a press, you can use a rolling pin...it just won't be as uniform)
Pinch off a piece of the masa dough and shape it into a ball the size of a plum, or slightly large golf ball.
Take two pieces of wax paper or parchment paper and lay one on the bottom of the tortilla press. Place the masa ball in the center. Place another piece of wax paper over the masa ball. Gently close the press and press down, until the dough has spread to a diameter of 4 to 6".
