Quick And Delicious
Traditional Corn Tortillas - 3 Ingredients
October 8, 2023

With just 3 ingredients, this is a super quick and easy, rewarding and traditional recipe!

This is one recipe it’s important to use the Masa Harina corn flour.  Before you think twice about making them, we found the organic flour in our local IGA.  So it’s probably easier than you might think to find!

Masa is the Spanish word for dough and the traditional dough used to make corn tortillas.  It’s made with dried corn kernels, cooked and soaked in limewater, then ground into masa – masa harina (dough flour) is flour made from dried masa.  We had heaps of fun making these, helped along with my hubby disappearing to the shed for an hour or so to make the press!  Of course, it’s not necessary, but lots of fun for the kids, big and little.

Preparation:  3 minutes
Cooking:  2 minutes
:  approx. 12 tortillas / 2 cups of dough

Traditional Corn Tortillas!

  • 2 cups masa harina corn flour – preferably organic
  • 1 1/2 – 2 cups hot water
  • 2 tsp celtic sea salt


  • Mix the flour and salt together first
  • Slowly add the water and stir until a firm dough forms, not too sticky or dry!
  • Add more water or flour if needed.
  • When you have the dough take amounts equal to a little bigger than a golf ball.   Place on a piece of baking paper to roll out and a similar size on the top.
  • Roll out to a flat tortilla size or place into a tortilla press and press away!
  • Cook for a couple of minutes each side in a hot pan or barbeque plate until just golden in colour.
  • Serve with your favourite pulled beef (recipe), mince or fish and trimmings!  Yummm.
