Easy homemade corn tortillas recipe! It’s easier than you think to make tortillas at home. Master plain corn tortillas or add ancho chile and lime.
Combine the masa flour, water, and salt (and chile powder and lime if using) in a large bowl and mix well with your hands to form a dough. The dough should be slightly on the dry side, and should not stick to your hands. If the dough sticks to your hands, add a bit more masa flour and blend again.
*If you don't have a tortilla press, you can press the tortillas in plastic wrap using the back of a large sauce pan.
**This process can take quite a bit of practice. If your dough tears, just roll it into a ball and try again.
