Easy Homemade Corn Tortillas

Making your own tortillas has never been easy thanks to this simple recipe that only calls for three ingredients!


  • Combine the masa harina and salt together in a mixing bowl, carefully tip in the hot water and mix. Form a ball shape using a spoon.

  • Using clingfilm or a clean towel, cover the bowl and leave the dough for an hour or two.

  • Heat a frying pan or griddle over a medium heat, remove a golf ball sized piece of dough and roll in to a ball using your hands.

  • Line a tortilla press with clingfilm, place the small dough ball in the middle, placed clingfilm on top and press the dough.

  • Cook the flattened dough in the griddle or frying pan for 30 seconds to 1 minutes or until brown marks appear.

  • Flip the tortilla and cook the other side, remove and place in between kitchen paper.

  • Repeat until you've used all of the dough. Serve with your favourite tortilla filling.
