Hopi Blue Corn Tortillas


Homemade tortillas are so delicious, don't take long to make and really aren't hard to make. If you don't have a tortilla press, you can roll them out with a rolling pin between two pieces of parchment paper.

Step 1

In a medium bowl, sift the flour, nutmeg and white pepper together. Set the mixture aside.

In a large bowl, pour the boiling water over the cornmeal and stir to mix. Allow the cornmeal to rest and cool for 5 to 15 minutes.

When the cornmeal mixture is cooled, work the sifted flour mixture in to the cornmeal. Knead the dough for 1-2 minutes.

Pinch off 10 balls of dough.

Meanwhile, heat a griddle over medium-high heat. Once the griddle is hot, start pressing each ball of dough in a baking-parchment-lined tortilla press. Toast each tortilla for at least 2 minutes on either side. The tortilla is done when dark brown spots begin to appear on its surface. These tortillas are best enjoyed right off the griddle, but you may store them in an air-tight container and reheat for later usage.
