Here is our foolproof recipe for making delicious homemade tortillas. Using our specialty masa lista flour, these will have you thinking you are in dining in the heart of Mexico. Masa lista flour is made from 100% corn flour and treated with lime to make it more alkaline and easier to digest. It is high in fibre and protein and is also gluten free, so suitable for those with sensitive digestion, gluten intolerance or Coeliac disease.
This is one of our favourite things to make when we come together, and once you get the knack, it is a super simple dinner option to accompany your favourite meat or vegetarian dishes with salad.
