Corn Tortillas

The secret to Hot Bread Kitchen's richly flavorful tortillas is the masa made from freshly ground blue or white corn. Fresh masa is becoming increasingly available in cities with large Mexican populations, but masa harina, a dry corn flour, works well.

In Mexico, cooks flatten tortillas with a wodden press, but a rolling pin or heavy skillet also works well. Press the dough between sheets of plastic wrap to keep it from sticking.
