    Corn Tortillas #3

  • 4 cups masa
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • About 3 cups warm water
  • Put the masa in a bowl, along with the soda and baking soda. Pour over it warm water, stirring constantly until a soft dough is formed. You may not need to use all of the water.

    Pinch off a bit of dough, the size of a golf ball or even smaller. Pat the dough into a flat circle. In Mexico, women pat the dough as they transfer it from one hand to the other. Most of us, use an ordinary hand tortilla press. Put a piece of plastic film on the press, top with the pat of masa and cover with a second piece of film. Press.

    Drop the tortilla on a hot griddle. Cook until it is dry, turn and finish cooking. Put the finished tortilla on a tea towel, cover to hold in heat. Repeat at will.
    Serve hot as a substitute for bread.
