Corn Tortillas are naturally gluten free and can be made with two or three ingredients: corn flour, water and salt (optional). Super easy and delicious.
Homemade Corn Tortillas Recipe
Tortillas (especially corn tortillas) are one of the breads that lots of people around the world eat every day. Until I watched our Costa Rican host, Jeanette, make them, I never suspected they were so simple. The proportions are almost one-to-one with corn flour and very hot water.
Just about every culture has a flatbread that they love. There's Chapati, Pita, Tandoori, and Pizza. Most are made with wheat flour, which I can't eat. They are all super good. I wish I could eat them. For pizza, I substitute my Gluten Free Dairy Free White Bread recipe for the crust. It's the best gluten free crust I've had!
This corn tortilla recipe is so easy and tasty, you're gonna wanna kiss me. I did not have a tortilla press and my tortillas turned out a little thicker than they should, but I like them that way. The hardest part is patting the tortilla out thin enough while keeping it round. If you get a good tortilla press, it's a snap. Our friend David showed us that if you flatten it once, then turn it 180 degrees and do it again, you'll get a better, rounder tortilla, and it will be perfect.
What You Need
You will need corn flour and water, a measuring cup, a little plastic wrap or parchment paper and, if you so desire, a tortilla press. And a good nonstick skillet. Always buy the best tools you can afford!
