I have been looking for a tortilla press but didn't have any luck at my local stores. Luckily my dad is a woodworker and so I just asked him to make me one after I saw a tutorial online. It didn't take him very long at all... This one is actually my moms. It makes 8 inch tortillas. Dad is going to make me one that makes 10 inch tortillas.
They were super simple to make. I just mixed the corn flour with water until it formed a dough. Then I cut it into 16 pieces. I basically followed the instructions on the back of the bag of corn flour. I think I will cut less pieces next time though because the tortillas came out really small. J helped me roll all the pieces into balls. Then you just cover the press with plastic wrap (I used a ziplock bag), put a ball of dough in it and press down on the handle.
Out comes a flat, round, corn tortilla. I was so excited cuz it was really easy. Afterward you just cook them in a skillet for about a minute on each side. Fill them with your favorite fillings and enjoy your tacos/burritos whatever you want to make!!! I filled mine with eggs and spinach cuz it was breakfast time. Delicious!! :)
What is your favorite thing to make from scratch?
