Easy Corn Tortillas Wednesday, Mar 7 2012 

My friends were talking about an easy homemade corn tortilla recipe recently. I was intrigued since we love tortillas but seldom have them. Why? Because they are so expensive in my area, and I seldom make them since they are quite a bit of work homemade!

They graciously gave me their recipe, and I tried them that night. Why postpone what can be made right away?! ๐Ÿ™‚

I had high hopes of it turning out like a regular tortilla (but corn-flavoured), but it’s not like a regular tortilla. It’s more like a crepe. It cooks like a crepe, it tastes like it too! But it worked! My husband said “You can definitely do these again!” ๐Ÿ™‚

If you’re up for a super easy recipe, to use in place of a tortilla, you may want to try this one out! I’ll be making it again. So simple, and so cheap to make. ๐Ÿ™‚


Easy Corn Tortillas

2 cups flour (I used spelt)
1 cup cornmeal
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups water (probably will need to addย more to thin out batter as you go on)

Mix all ingredients together. Makes a runny batter. Simply pour 1/4 cup into frying pan and spread it out immediately to make it thin. Flip it when the edges curl.

Voila! That easy! I bet these would also taste good for breakfast, or with dessert toppings inside. Mmmmm!

My attempt at corn tortillas! Tuesday, Jul 5 2011 

Yesterday, my husband and I attempted to make corn tortillas using masa corn flour. It did not work well at all! They taste funny, my husband ended up being the one to roll and cook them. They just didn’t turn out thin, nor like tortillas, nor could they be rolled right.

So my question is: how do you make good corn tortillas?! My attempt was using the recipe on the bag, combining just masa flour with water. Any tips or advice would be appreciated! I want to master this! ๐Ÿ˜€
