WOW! ok, I made these last night and don't have a tortilla press (or a rolling pin... ehem... or...erm...plastic wrap...) so what I did was: wrapped it in foil for the 30 minutes (stayed warm, that's for sure). Then, for the pressing out into 15 tortillas--they were a tad thick, but so yummy!! I used my fingers on a plate, which I'd then use a spatula to flip over on the plate, press out some more, flip, press, flip, press.... I then rubbed a VERY SMALL amount of salt (I measured 1 tsp into a small dish and then just dabbed my fingers on it) so with the final "pressing out" I'd rub in the salt. Very tasty indeed. Also, I used BLUE masa harina so I have these awesome purple tortillas which look like flowers. Hehehehe... oh, and they had to most definitely cook for almost 1 min-1.5 mins on each side, if not longer, since they were sort of thick. But overall, INCREDIBLE! I do want to try adding some lime juice like someone else suggested, I bet that would rock. Then again, lime seems to be my favorite...
mmm... quadruple thumbs up!
