Making Blue Corn Tortillas

Above, the ball of masa is in between two pieces of plastic wrap on the tortilla press.

Here I have taken the top piece of plastic wrap off after I pressed the ball on the press.

You can buy a tortilla press for $10-$15 online or at a South American market.

A stack of blue corn tortillas!  

These are so easy to make.  Mix masa and water 1:1, roll a small ball, put it between two sheets of plastic wrap on a tortilla press, press it, remove the plastic wrap, cook in a dry pan 1 minuter per side, stack and eat.  If you do not have a tortilla press, use a rolling pin or even just flatten it with your hands.

I like mine with beans and salsa…

You can use parchment paper if you do not want to use plastic wrap.  If plastic does not bother you, try using a cut plastic baggie since the plastic is much thicker and easier to work with.
