Breakfast Tacos with Homemade Corn Tortillas

This week, my friend Brooke declared it's easy to make corn tortillas and that they're delicious.

I immediately headed to Amazon to order a tortilla press and to my co-op to search for Masa Harina. They had it, but if you can't find it, you can order it online.

  • 1 cup Masa Harina (will make approximately 6 6-inch tortillas)
  • Eggs
  • Shredded Cheddar
  • Hot Sauce
  • Optional: cooked sausage, vegetables, other taco ingredients

  1. Mix Masa Harina with scant 1 cup hot water and a dash of salt. Once combined, cover and set aside for one hour.
  2. When dough is ready, roll into 2-inch balls. Press in a tortilla press lined with wax or parchment paper.
  3. Heat griddle to hot. Cook tortillas approximately 1 minute on each side. Keep warm in towels until other ingredients are ready.
  4. Scramble eggs and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Assemble tacos and enjoy!


Notes: Very easy to make! I don't know what took me so long to try it, but I don't think we'll ever purchase tortillas again.
