  1. 1 cup corn flour
  2. 1 cup white flour
  3. 1/2 teaspoon sal en grano
  4. 1 teaspoon of juice from a small green limón
  5. 1 cup water
  6. 1/4 cup avacado oil
  1. Mix the flours & salt together, add the limón juice, water, & oil to make a dough. Knead on a floured surface until smooth, adding more water or flour if necessary. Divide into 18 to 20 parts. Shape into balls and roll out thin with a rolling pin on a well floured surface, or tortilla press between two pieces of wax paper. Brush oil on a griddle pan and brown tortillas (bubbles should start forming), flip tortillas over and repeat. A flat cast-iron skillet works well.
  1. I have tried a number of corn tortilla recipes but they never worked well for me – too dry and crumbly. This works well every time, especially since it's difficult to just run over to a grocery store to pickup a tiny package of the corn tortillas that they do sell here. I sure do miss the bulk packages that Sams Club offers!
