1 3/4 Cup Masa Harina (Golden Corn Flour if you can find it)
1 1/8 Cups Warm Water
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
Pinch of Chili Powder
Mix all dry ingredients together. If you want traditional tortillas you can just use the masa and a pinch of salt, or take the opportunity to add some bonus flavour to your tortillas.
Add the water in slowly just until all ingredients are incorporated.
If your tortillas are a bit dry add a smidge of water, if it’s a little wet add a bit more masa.
Cover and let rest for about a half an hour.
Divide mixture into about 16 balls and using your press, rolling pin etc. magically turn them into tortillas.
Heat a pan (preferably cast iron) to medium high. Each tortilla needs about 30 sec. on each side until perfectly golden brown.
-Use wax paper or saran wrap as it helps tortillas to not stick
-If you have rips in the tortilla, you can form it back into a ball and try again!
Makes approx. 16 tortillas
