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.
