How do you make corn tortillas not fall apart?
The best way to keep homemade corn tortillas fresh is to loosely wrap them in paper towels while cooking. The steam from the cooked tortillas soaks into the paper towel just enough to provide extra hydration. Once your tortillas are done and slightly cooled, wrap them (and the paper towels) tightly in aluminum foil.
How do you keep corn tortillas from cracking when making enchiladas?
Steam corn tortillas in the microwave so they stay pliable and don't split under the weight of taco fillings. Wrap a stack of tortillas in damp paper towels or a damp kitchen towel, then wrap in plastic wrap or place in a microwave-safe resealable plastic bag (keep the bag open to vent).
Why won't my tortillas inflate?
Some tips while making your corn tortillas. If the tortillas stick to the press, maybe you added too much water. Knead the dough well. If your tortillas do not puff, you need to knead the dough very well. You can try to press down the tortilla with a spatula while it is in the final cooking to force the puffing.
Why don't my flour tortillas puff up?
Your dough isn't wet enough (to make steam) so you get no puff. I actually don't use baking powder for this very reason. The puff is your best indicator that you got the dough hydration and cooking temperature correct. Baking powder is a bit of a cheat that throws that indicator all wonky.
Why did my tortillas come out crunchy?
Why do my homemade flour tortillas come out hard? If the comal is not hot enough when you start cooking, the tortillas may come out hard. Or you may need to knead longer to release the glutens. See step above on how long to knead for and the cooking times.
Why are my homemade tortillas crispy?
It might be that the tortilla is too thin and it turns into something more akin to a crisp than a soft, pliable wrap. It could also be that you are making your tortillas too thick, trying to avoid the previous issue.
Is a tortilla press worth it?
The advantage of using a tortilla press, whether cast iron, aluminum, or wood, is the ability to quickly and uniformly create round, flat, and thin, but not too thin, disks. It's definitely worth the investment if you make tortillas in large quantities or on a regular basis.
Is it better to roll or press flour tortillas?
The skillet and tortilla press must be large enough to fit the size of tortillas you want to make. *You do not have to have tortilla press; you can make tortillas with a rolling pin. But the press makes it much easier! Measure the flour, baking powder, and salt into the mixing bowl.
Can I make tortillas without a press?
Place a tortilla on a hot comal or griddle. Let it cook on each side for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Place cooked tortilla in a Styrofoam tortilla keeper or wrap in cloth and keep warm in a basket until all of the tortillas are done. Continue to 7 of 7 below.
Can you make homemade tortillas on a griddle?
When you're ready to make the tortillas, head a dark or cast iron griddle to medium/medium-high heat. One by one, roll out balls of dough until very, very thin. Throw tortillas (one by one) onto the griddle. Cook on each side for 20 to 30 seconds, removing while tortillas are still soft but slightly brown in spots.

How thin should you roll tortillas?
Roll the tortillas fairly thin. You want them about 6-inches in diameter and to look somewhat translucent if you held them up to the light. Thick tortillas won't be tender. If you try rolling out these tortillas and the dough keeps shrinking back, let it rest for another 15-30 minutes.
How thin should you roll out tortillas?
Using a rolling pin, roll dough out to a very thin 8-inch round. Place dough in skillet and cook until bubbles form on top side and bottom side has light browned spots, 15-30 seconds. Flip tortilla and cook until second side develops light browned spots, 15-30 seconds longer.
Why do my tortillas shrink after I roll them out?
It takes time for the gluten in the flour to relax. If you let the dough rest longer before pressing it into tortillas, it won't shrink. It takes time for the gluten in the flour to relax.
Do you need baking powder in tortillas?
Some flour tortilla recipes call for baking powder. Some don't. It acts as a leavening agent, giving the tortillas a little bit of puffy volume. Sans baking soda, it would be a much flatter tortilla.
How do you know if tortillas are too dry?
After the dough has had a chance to rest, it's time to check the texture. Break off a small piece, roll it into a ball, then press it between your palms. If it forms cracks along the edges it's too dry.
Can you over knead tortilla dough?
Just be careful not to over knead the dough. The dough will be sticky when you are done mixing it. Add just enough flour to be able to handle the dough. It should still be tacky while you knead it.
How do you make tortillas soft and stretchy?
I usually just splash some water on a tortilla dab it with a paper town then heat it up in the microwave for like 30 or so seconds it works great to make rolling burritos and makes the stretchy!
