Fresh Tortillas

While corn tortillas made from masa (maize dough) are traditional for tacos, this wheat flour version, popular in Northern Mexico, doesn’t require a tortilla press.


Ingredients

  • 2 cups (240 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp table salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp room-temperature butter
  • 1 cup very hot water

Instructions

Fresh tortillas would be a great addition to Diala Canelo’s late-summer DIY taco bar.

Kitchen tip: Divide the dough into 6 to 8 balls for larger, burrito-size tortillas.
