The are cheap to buy, but not expensive and much nicer when homemade.

We also have a good recipe for corn tortillas that uses masa harina for that real authentic taste.

Method

  1. Rub the flour, salt and shortening together unti it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  2. Little by little add the water and mix to a dough.
  3. Cover with a damp cloth and leave for 20 minutes.
  4. Divide into golf-ball sized balls or slightly larger.
  5. Roll out on a floured worktop.
  6. Cook for about a minute on a hot tava or griddle pan until they puff up.

Chef's notes

Vegetable shortening is a solid vegetable fat such as Crisco or Trex. Lard could be used without any problems but the recipe would no longer be vegetarian.

Chef's note

If you don't have a tortilla press, use 2 chopping boards or just two sheets of wood as a substitute. Place ball of dough between two non-stick surfaces such as small squares of Bake-O-Glide and stand on them!
