Ingredients /supplies that you will need✅
Place on the griddle as shown
First off, I don't normally measure these ingredients. I usually eyeball it. In a large mixing bowl add 2⃣ cups of Maseca. 🍚
Add 1/2 cup of All - purpose flour✔
Mix Masexa and all - purpose flour together very well.
Once mixed together well, add 2 1/4 cups of HOT water. (Hint 1⃣: 🚰 water should be as hot as you can get it) add water a little at a time while mixing kneading.
Continue to knead
Knead until texture is dough like.
This is what it starts to look like (Hint 2⃣: IF dough is too dry then add more Water or if its too watery then add more Maseca). Be careful , add just a little at a time so that you DON'T over due it
This is the final product.
Usually I roll the dough into a log for easy measuring to make the dough balls but you can leave it as is while making the balls.
Heat your griddle on med heat 🔥before starting to make dough.
When making the balls make sure they are about the size of a golf ball.⚾
Cut a plastic bag to the size of the tortillera.
Place one side down as shown above 🔝 and then one on the top.
Place a dough ball on the bottom ⬇ panel
Place the other piece of plastic on top of the dough then ...
Place the top part of the tortillera down
Use lever / handle down with a little pressure
Open the tortillera and take the top plastic off of the tortilla and above is what you should see
Pick the bottom plastic up and start to peel off the plastic from the tortilla as shown above
Let cook about 2 mins each side. Make sure that you dot flip more than twice
Once the dough looks like its drying out then its time to flip over to other side
My griddle can hold about six tortillas at a time. Dint be afraid to heat more than one or two at a time. Continue the process to make the other tortillas 🔃
One it starts to either brown as shown or
Fatten up as shown then that means its done and its a perfect tortilla ✅💯 (Hint: Not all tortillas will fatten up like that)
Use the aluminum foil and the wax paper to keep the tortillas warm. Pile them up as such. All done! ✔💯👍eat with your meal 🍛
