Corn Tortillas

Contributor: Marian

2 cups corn flour
1-1/8 - 1-1/2 cup water

Knead mixture to form a ball. Dough should not be too dry (i.e. if it 'cracks' when it is rolled into a ball, add more water).

Once it is the right consistency, heat a flat pan on the stove. Form golf-ball sized balls of dough, and flatten in a tortilla press for best results.

Cook on a hot flat pan and turn once it starts to puff up a little bit. For added showmanship, cook them on a non stick skillet and you can show off and flip them in the air.
