Yield: Yields about 35 tortillas
Tender, flavorful, homemade corn tortillas are worlds apart from their store-bought counterparts, and they make any taco taste better. Although not necessary, a tortilla press comes in handy for making these.
Make Ahead Tips
You can make the tortillas up to an hour before serving. Wrap them in a clean, slightly damp dishtowel, and then wrap the towel in foil. Keep warm in a 200°F oven.

I made this for the first time and it worked fine. I understood about the Play-Doh feel. As I made them, the mixture began to dry out. I mearly wet my hand for each ready made ball and that was enough moisture to bring it back together again. I am waiting on my tortilla press, which arrives today and I will make them again.
Wow! Sorry to hear the bad review from elisebuck! We love this recipe; much better than the ones you buy at the store. The trick I think is that tip that: 'the dough should feel like Play-Doh'. Not stiff, not soggy, and Pliable. I have to add more water a drop at a time to get there. But we are at high altitude. Don't give up! They're delicious.
I'm not sure what I did wrong, but these just wouldn't come together. Had to throw out the whole thing.
