4 stars because I agree it was too much salt. My masa was wasn't very fresh and I'd stored it in a plastic bag instead of a jar, which isn't the fault of the recipe. I used a squeeze of lime while rolling the balls. Read More

I made this Tortillas about a dozen times. I am surprised there not many reviews. Very easy to make, very tasty to eat. Today we will have fish tacos with purple cabbage slow. Read More

I cooked mine about 5 mins longer so they could brown (my oven temp may be off). Husband loves them and he doesn't usually crave peanut butter cookies. Read More

1 teaspoon salt is way too much. 1/4 is fine. Also they turn out better with a bit less water: between the 1/3 and 1/2 cup lines is perfect. Also the tortillas need to be flipped twice: put in griddle in about 30 seconds flip. In about 30 more seconds flip once more and then it should puff. When they puff they re ready. Read More
