    4Susan's Note:

    In Mexico these are always served steaming hot and freshly made. They are moist and succulent, truly a different species form commercial corn tortilla's. You cannot make a soft enchilada without this recipe and once you eat them you will never use store bought again! You will need a tortilla press to make these - try looking in a gourmet or specialty shop. Or use a rolling pin to flatten out to 6-7" - Or you can try using your hands to flatten to 1/4" thick or less - takes practise but it can be done. Masa Harina is "dough flour made from corn". The fresh masa is soaked in lime and then force-dried and ground into a fine powder. Do not use regular corn flour!

    1. 1
      Mix water with the masa and mix quickly and lightly.
    2. 2
      Cover with a damp towel and set aside for 20 minutes.
    3. 3
      Open the tortilla press and place a plastic sandwich bag on the bottom plate.
    4. 4
      Make a ball of dough about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
    5. 5
      Flatten the ball slightly and place on the baggie.
    6. 6
      Then place another baggie on top, close the press and push down on the handle.
    7. 7
      Remove the tortilla and carefully peel the bag/s from the dough.
    8. 8
      Lay on a hot slightly greased skillet and when the edges begin to stiffen and dry out a little, flip it over; if you use a heavy cast iron skillet you won't need to use oil.
    9. 9
      Only filp once, they don't taste good if you keep flipping!
    10. 10
      Keep the tortilla's warm in a stack, wrapped with a thick towel.
    11. 11
      You may need to add a little water to the masa from time to time if it dries out.
