Artisan Unleavened Flat Bread - 100% Corn Flour

2 cups Maseca Instant corn flour

1 teaspoon salt

Mix together

2 cups hot water

Pour water over flour, let it sit until it's cool enough to knead. You will think it's going to be a goopy mess and that you must have used too much water, but keep at it, it will come together into a big soft ball about the consistency of Play-doh.

Let dough rest, covered with plastic wrap for 20-30 minutes. Shape into 8-10 equal sized balls. Press each ball into a flat circle between sheets of plastic wrap, (I use a gallon sized zip lock bag cut open). You can use a tortilla press, or a flat bottomed plate or pan. They need to be about as thick as a coin. Cook on a hot grill, about a minute on each side. Grill should be about 375.

And now you have home made corn tortillas.
