Thursday’s Side Dish: Homemade tortillas

Hand-rolled with rustic charm

A bit of time, wax paper, water, and a corn flour is all it takes to make your own homemade tortillas. Cook or grill these in a hot cast-iron skillet greased with oil or non-stick cooking spray for 3 to 5 minutes on each side. The unruly thickness and texture creates a corn flavored bite in every serving. Toast them a bit longer for crisper flavors. Here’s the recipe:

What you will need:

1 flat wooden spoon

1 medium-sized bowl
½ cup water
Wax paper
1 cup masa flour
Non-stick cooking spray
1 cast-iron skillet

Cooking and Directions:

Mix corn flour and water in medium-sized bowl until a mass of dough forms. Split this one piece in two to 4 smaller pieces. Pull out two roughly 9 inch pieces of wax paper. Press and flatten dough pieces between wax paper. Heat cast-iron skillet on medium-high heat until HOT. Spray bottom of pan with non-stick cooking spray. Carefully position flattened tortilla dough in hot skillet. Cook on each side for 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat process for other pieces until done.
