Homemade Tortilla Recipes


2-1/3 cups masa harina (corn flour)
1 tsp kosher salt
1-1/2 cups warm water

Mix the masa harina (available in ethnic food isles) with the salt. Add 1 cup of warm water slowly; stirring constantly. Knead the dough on a lightly floured board, adding enough of the remaining water by tablespoons until the dough becomes smooth, firm and no longer sticky.

Divide the dough into 12 equal portions (makes 12 tortillas) and form these into balls. Place the balls between waxed paper and using a rolling pin, press into thin, round 5 inch diameter pancake-like shapes.

Cook on medium-high heat in an ungreased griddle or skillet for approximately two minutes on each side. As you cook them, stack on a large sheet of foil. Just before you are ready to eat, preheat the oven to 300 degrees and warm the stack for 5 minutes.

Homemade Tortilla Recipes



4 cups flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
2 TBS lard (no substitutes)
1-1/2 cups water


Whisk the flour, salt, and baking powder together in a mixing bowl. Mix in the lard with your fingers until the flour resembles cornmeal.

Add the water and mix until the dough comes together; place on a lightly floured surface and knead a few minutes until smooth and elastic. Divide the dough into 24 equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball.

Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Use a well-floured rolling pin to roll a dough ball into a thin, round tortilla.

Place into the hot skillet, and cook until bubbly and golden; flip and continue cooking until golden on the other side. Place the cooked tortilla in a tortilla warmer; continue rolling and cooking the remaining dough.
