To make these tortillas, you only need three ingredients, a bowl, a wooden spoon or a spatula, your hands and a frying pan. 

They do not contain gluten or lactose and are also vegan. 

They are prepared because it is not a dough that has to rest, and they are wealthy. 

They are the perfect tortillas!

We love Mexican food, but the tortillas we used to buy were full of unhealthy ingredients and many times, we craved one at the last minute and didn't have one at home

Now that we have the cornmeal always on hand, we can prepare it at any time because the other two ingredients are water and salt, and obviously, we never lack.

These tortillas are a bit stiff, ideal for some Mexican dishes such as tacos. 

If you want them to be softer, you have to add 40 grams of oil. 

We use them like this for all recipes because we don't care, and since they don't have oil, they are lighter.

For us, tortillas come out well with these measures, but that may vary depending on the flour you use, so we recommend that you add the oil first and then add the water little by little not to overdo it the dough is too runny. 

It may also happen that you need more water than we do.

These tortillas do not taste the same as the ones we usually buy at the supermarket. 

They are made from wheat and ours from corn, although you have to try them because they are delicious and are much healthier. 

Also, authentic Mexican tortillas are made with cornflour.

As you can see in the photo below, the dough has to be in such a way that when we sink our fingers, the mark remains.

It is essential to knead because it may seem a bit damp at first, but it will be perfect after 3 or 5 minutes.

The only downside of these homemade tortillas is that they do not keep very well when cooked because they stay a bit stiff and lose flavour, so you have to eat them at the moment. 

The good thing is that they are so delicious that you will finish them all, so you have nothing to worry about.

Later we will show you some recipes to take advantage of the tortillas, they are very versatile, and we do not use them only for Mexican cuisine

Ingredients SCALE (1x)

  • 350 grams of precooked white cornmeal
  • 480 grams of water
  • Two teaspoons of salt

Ingredients SCALE (2x)

  • 700 grams of precooked white cornmeal
  • 960 grams of water
  • Four teaspoons of salt

Ingredients SCALE (3x)

  • 1050 grams of precooked white cornmeal
  • 1440 grams of water
  • Six teaspoons of salt


  1. We put the cornmeal, salt and water in a bowl. The water must be warm; if it is cold, the tortillas will break, and if it is hot, the dough will be chewy. We stir with the help of a spoon until it begins to cost you, then you put your hands in the bowl and begin to knead. It usually takes us 3 or 5 minutes for the dough to have a perfect consistency.
  2. When the dough is ready, we make balls about the size of an egg. As we do not have the device in which tortillas are usually shaped, we place plastic wrap or an open frozen bag on the table, put our dough ball, cover with film or another bag, and with the help of a Source, crush the dough until it has the shape of a tortilla. Ideally, they should be as thin as possible, 1 or 2 millimetres thick.
  3. In a greased frying pan or skillet (we add a drop of oil and spread it with a paper napkin), we add the tortillas and leave them over medium-high heat until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side.
