- 2 cups Golden Masa Harina Corn Flour or Gluten Free Golden Masa Harina
- 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
- 1-1/2 to 2 cups Hot Water
Mix salt into the masa harina corn flour. Slowly pour the water into the dough to get a good consistency. The dough should be firm and springy when touched, not dry or sticky. Let rest for about an hour, covered.
Preheat a griddle or flat surface. Divide the dough into 2 inch balls. Press dough between two pieces of waxed paper, or flatten according to a tortilla press directions. Place flatten dough on a hot griddle or flat surface and cook until the top of the tortilla starts to look cooked, about 1 minute. Flip to the other side and heat for a few seconds.
Makes 12 – 6 inch tortillas.
