Shop bought corn tortillas here is Oz have a nasty habit of splitting and being rather similar to cardboard in texture so I now make my own.
I invested in a tortilla press a while ago and the boys happily work in the production line to make bigger batches of these. If you don’t have a press, don’t panic, a couple of heavy books will work a treat too!
This recipe makes 12 tortillas but I usually triple the recipe as the tortillas will last for a week in a sealed bag or a few months wrapped well in the freezer.
220g masa lista, Mexican corn flour
325mls warm water
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
a pinch of cayenne powder
a pinch of salt
Weigh the flour, smoked paprika and cayenne into a large bowl.
Pour the water in and using your hands, mix to form a dough.
