Homemade Corn Tortilla Recipe by Archana’s Kitchen

  • To begin making the Homemade Corn Tortilla Recipe, in a medium bowl, mix together masa harina, whole wheat flour, salt and hot water until thoroughly combined.

  • Place the dough onto a clean surface and knead until pliable and smooth. Knead for a good 5 minutes until the dough is smooth.

  • The humidity in the hands and the heat from the water will bring the dough together and make it smooth.If dough is too sticky, add more masa harina; if it begins to dry out, sprinkle with water.

  • Place the dough in a bowl, cover with a tight fitting lid or a plastic wrap and allow it to rest for half an hour.Preheat a cast iron skillet or or a heavy bottomed skillet.

  • Divide dough into 6 to 8 to equal size balls. Using a rolling pin or a tortillas press, dust the dough portions on flour and roll out into a 6 inch diameter circle.

  • Place the rolled out tortillas on to the preheated skillet and allow to cook for approximately 30 seconds. You will notice that the tortillas will start to puff.

  • Flip over to the other side and cook the tortillas until they puff this side as well.You can optionally place them on a flame and make them puff fully.

  • Repeat process with the remaining dough portions and store the tortillas covered with a towel to stay warm and moist until ready to serve.

  • Serve the Corn Tortillas with Roasted Vegetables and Mexican Salsa.
