This time you will learn how to make your own corn tortillas with our how-to video (German language).YouTube Channel of the nice Rarotonga, will show you how to make the Mexican Tortillas by means of a tortilla press (also available here in the store).

Of course, we have also written down the recipe for you in text form.
You'll need the following ingredients for approx. 11 tortillas
- 2 Cups Corn Flour (approx. 220g) i.e. Maseca Corn Flour
- 1 2/3 Cups hand-warm Water (approx. 400ml)
- Crepe Pan or Comal / Tortilla Pan
- Tortillero or dry kitchen towels to keep them warm while you finish the others
- Additionally: a bowl, cling film, freezer bag
Preparation of the Tortillas
Get everything ready. After preparing the mixture, it is important to let it rest for 30 minutes to 1 hour until you process it!
Mix / knead in the corn flour and lukewarm water in small increments in the bowl.
Continue kneading for 5 minutes until the dough is soft and no longer sticky.
Cover dough with plastic wrap, let rest 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Form about 10-11 balls from the dough about as long and wide as the little finger of your hands.
Place a cut open freezer bag on top of your opened tortilla press and place a ball in your hand slightly flattened beforehand in the center of the bottom of the press.
Fold down the top of the press and push the lever of the press towards the top to flatten the tortilla.
Carefully take the tortilla out of the freezer bag plastic and place in the heated pan. Turn after 20 seconds, then wait 1 minute and 20 seconds, turn again and wait briefly. Remove the tortilla from the pan when it puffs up and place in a tortillero or folded towel to keep warm while you bake the other tortillas.
We wish Rarotonga, who has put a lot of effort into the video and recipe, even more subscribers on her YouTube Channel (Link) or more followers at their Instagram Account (Link), so that it will bring you and us many more videos.
