When I received a Tortilla Press and Warmer from IMUSA, the first thing that came to mind was making tortillas for some enchiladas. These were two things I’ve never prepared. I’ve seen chefs, including George Duran, make them, and it looked pretty simple. I’ll admit, it took me a few tries to get it right. So if you plan on making tortillas, heed our advice.
Corn Tortilla Making Lessons Learned:
- Flour Matters. Don’t get Masa de Maiz. You’ll wind up making polenta instead of tortillas. Be sure to purchase Masa Harina de Maiz.
- Temperature. The temperature of the water matters. Don’t use cold water when mixing the corn flour. Be sure to use hot water.
- Watch the experts. Before making tortillas, watch IMUSA’s video on using a Tortilla Press: http://www.imusausa.com/using-tortilla-press/
