How to cook flour corn tortillas

In most every recipe for corn tortillas, the proportion of ingredients called for is 2 cups of Masa Harina to 1-1/4 to 1-1/3 cupsof water. However, the difference between 1/4 cup and 1/3 cup, while only 4 teaspoons, can be critical.

The process is this:

  1. Mix the Masa Harina and the water; knead        to form your masa (dough)
  2. Pinch off a golf-ball sized piece of masa        and roll it into a ball
  3. Set the masa on a piece of plastic in the        tortilla press; cover with another piece of plastic
  4. Press the masa
  5. Transfer the tortilla to a hot, dry        skillet
  6. Cook for about 30 seconds on one side;        gently turn
  7. Cook for about 60 seconds (it should puff        slightly); turn back to the first side
  8. Cook for another 30 seconds on the first        side
  9. Remove and keep the tortilla warm
