Homemade Corn Tortillas Preparation
In a bowl mix ingredients until the dough comes together about 2 minutes.If the dough feels dry add a TBS of water at a time. You want to knead it a bit... for a minute or so. It will be the consistency of sandy play dough.Divide dough into 16 parts. Cover with a damp towel. If you have a tortilla press, line it with 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Place each ball between the plastic wrap and press until tortilla measures about 5 to 6 in in diameter. Peel plastic wrap CAREFULLY. If it tears just press together again to seal. If you are careful, it just peels off.
If you don't have a tortilla press do what I do and roll the balls between 2 sheets of plastic wrap using a rolling pin.Preheat a skillet on med -high. You may want to heat 2 skillets if you can work quickly like I did to speed the process up a bit. Cook tortillas one a at a time for 50 seconds or so . Turn on second side and cook for an additional 50 secs or so. Cover tortillas...I usually cover with plastic wrap so that the heat steams them up a bit and they do not dry out. Use in your favorite dish...enchiladas tacos, etc.
