A complete guide to making delicious authentic corn tortillas at home.
Make Tortillas Without A Press: Use a flat-bottomed glass pie plate as a tortilla press. Lay the plastic bag on your work surface, folded over the dough ball. Put the pie plate on top and press it down to smush the dough into a pancake. Gently tilt the plate from side to side until the tortilla is as thin as you like. For more details, see photos and explanation in post.
Make Tortillas ahead of time: Corn tortillas are extra delicious when they’re freshly made but they can be made ahead of time and stored in an airtight plastic bag in the fridge for up to three days. For best results, reheat them, one at a time, in a hot skillet, for about 15 seconds per side. To keep them warm, stack them and wrap with a clean towel.
