Instruction on how to make Gluten-Free Corn Tortillas

  • Pour in about 1 cup of the hot water and mix with a large spoon.
  • Add more water, about 1 tablespoon at a time until you are able to form a soft ball of dough.
  • Place the ball of dough on a clean surface and divide into 12 to 16 equal pieces.
  • Roll into small balls and cover with a damp towel while you flatten each ball into a flat tortilla.
  • Heat a cast iron griddle or heavy safe non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  • Don’t add any fats or oil to the griddle.
  • Shape tortillas and then, one at a time, place each tortilla on the hot griddle and cook.
  • Flip after about 1 minute or when the tortilla just begins to brown.
  • This should take about 2 minutes.
  • Option with oil – Heat oil in a pan and fry on each side 2-3 minutes.
  • Stack cooked tortillas and wrap in a towel or place in a tortilla bowl to keep them warm until serving.
  • Serve and enjoy!
