I know you are thinking, homemade tortillas for breakf
You do need a tortilla press, but a few sheets of parchment and a rolling pin or two baking dishes will double as a press just fine. If you have a Mexican market near you you will likely find an inexpensive press there. You can pick up a bag of Maseca too. You can find this in the ethnic isle of your grocery store too. I use Maseca, code name, masa harina..... just add water, it is that easy. Now get the kids working it is just like playdough.
Follow the recipe on the bag.
Combine masa harina with water.
Mix with hands until dough is moist but holds its shape. Add more water if needed.
Let dough rest for 15 minutes. Divide dough into 12 balls. Dampen your hands slightly with water.
Using a tortilla press or two flat baking dishes, press dough between two pieces of waxed paper to a 6 inch round. Carefully peel off the top sheet of paper.
Place tortilla, paper side up, on a hot ungreased griddle or skillet. Gently peel off remaining paper.
Cook for 30 seconds or until edges begin to dry. Turn and cook until surface appears puffy. Repeat with remaining dough balls.
Keep warm in tin foil in a low oven.
