Mexican is a regular on our dinner menu, and often, that means tacos. Tacos, of course, require a shell. And our preference is to make fresh corn tortillas from scratch. It’s easy to do with the right implements (a tortilla press), and the results are delicious!
To begin, you’ll need only three ingredients: Maseca (instant corn masa flour), water, and salt. In a medium bowl, mix 1 cup Maseca, 2/3 cup warm water, and 1/2 tsp salt until combined. Texture should be soft dough…not dry, but also not tacky. (In other words, just right.)
