Corn Tortillas

2 cups corn flour
1 1/4 cup water
pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
1 tablespoon lime juice (optional)

Combine corn flour and water in a bowl and mix. After a few minutes sprinkle the cayenne pepper in the dough and add the lime juice. If the dough feels dry, add a small amount of water, about a tablespoon at a time.

Roll out dough and divide into 16 pieces. Cover dough with a damp papertowel to keep dough moist. Roll out each piece of dough into a ball. Using a tortilla press, line with plastic wrap and place dough on the press and flatten. Carefully remove from plastic wrap.

Add flattened down to a hot skillet or griddle and warm each side about 60-90 seconds. Serve.

Serving Size: 16 8-inch tortillas

Notes: For larger diameter tortillas you can use a rolling pin or the bottom of a skillet to flatten the dough. I no longer buy corn tortillas from the store. Even though this is a bit of a time consuming process, the final product is worth the effort. Best of all these are tasty and healthy for you.
