Corn Tortillas

2 c. Masa Harina
1 c. water

Mix until dough forms a ball (add 1-2 Tbsp. additional water, if necessary). Shape into approximately 14 balls and cover with moist towel to prevent drying. Place ball between sheets of plastic (or on tortilla press) and flatten to 6 inch disc.

Bake on ungreased griddle 30 seconds; turn. Continue baking 1 minute; turn. Contiue baking 15-30 seconds. Should be soft and pliable when done.

Flour Tortilla

2 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 c. shortening
3/4 c. plus 1 Tbsp. hot water

Mix all dry ingredients together well. Add hot water and mix well, either traditionally by hand or with a heavy-duty mixer using a "dough hook." When well mixed, form small portions into "pillow-shaped" balls and roll out on well floured surface. Place on medium-hot skillet and lightly brown, turning once.
