Do you like tacos, but dislike the non-fried shells because they crack when you fold them? You’re not alone!  Once you try this simple recipe, you’ll never use them again.  As for flour tortillas, I was hooked on them, but once I tried fresh corn tortillas, I never went back.


These tortillas are not only simple, but very healthy.  They’re made with just 3 ingredients and are gluten and preservative-free.  You can use for tacos, enchiladas or by themselves with salsa or guacamole.  Try them at your next gathering.  Your guests will gobble them up!



1 cup corn masa (ground corn flour)

7 oz. warm water

1/8 tsp. salt

Non-stick cooking spray



Place corn masa in a bowl and add salt and warm water.  Mix until dough forms a soft ball.  It will be playdough consistency.


Roll dough into eight, 1” balls.


Cut a gallon-sized plastic bag in half.


Place 1 ball of dough inside the bag and using a pie plate or tortilla press, press the dough into a flat tortilla.


Heat a large skillet and spray with non-stick cooking spray.  Place the tortilla in the skillet for ~1 minute, then flip and cook the other side.


Place on a plate and cover with a clean towel to steam them a bit before serving.
