DIRECTIONS

  • *Please read recipe introduction before proceeding!*.
  • Place the dry masa harina mix in a large mixing bowl.
  • In a small bowl add about 1 tablespoon of recado rojo (you can always add more later). Whisk in some water about 1/2 cup to make a paste.
  • Add this mixture to the bowl of dry masa harina mix. Now stir in enough water to make a pliable dough (or however much water the package of masa harina states on the back of the bag minus 1/2 cup water).
  • Form into tortillas.
  • Heat up the oil in a deep fryer, wok or heavy skillet (cast iron being my preference) to fry the tortillas until bright orange-red and crispy. Place the tortillas on a paper towel to drain the excess oil.
  • Try the tortillas with this!: Recipe #496068.
