game changing 3-ingredient corn tortillas

We have been making our own corn tortillas. Homemade tortillas are a GAME CHANGER! They are significantly more delicious than store bought, and so easy. Here's how we make them.


  • masa (2 cups makes about 5 tortillas)
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • warm-hot water
  • parchment paper 
  • tortilla press (we use this one)


  • mix the masa and salt together
  • add warm water (start with 1/2 water to masa ratio) 
  • mix water and masa
  • continue to add water until dough is formed but not sticky
  • divide dough into even portions 
  • press your tortillas using tortilla press lined with parchment paper to prevent sticking
  • heat pressed tortillas on pan or grill over med-high heat for about 2 min flipping in between
  • tortillas are done when they begin to bubble
  • enjoy!


These tortillas are even more delicious when made into veggie tacos. You can find our recipe here.
