Expert Tips

Use scissors to cut alongside Ziploc bag to create a foldable plastic liner for your tortilla press.

Freeze leftover tortillas wrapped in plastic wrap to use at a later day.

Directions

  • 1 To a blender add sliced nopal, water and cilantro; blend until smooth.
  • 2 In a bowl, combine corn flour, salt and nopal water.
  • 3 Knead to form a smooth dough.
  • 4 Divide dough into 16 portions and roll into smooth balls.
  • 5 Place one at a time onto a tortilla press lined with plastic film or plastic bag, press firmly.
  • 6 Cook on a preheated comal or grill for two minutes on each side.
  • 7 Serve warm.

Nopal tortillas are not only easy to make, they are simply delicious. Grab a bag of fresh nopales, a bunch of cilantro and corn flour, and you are set to make these vibrant nopal tortillas. I like to serve mine warm with refried beans and a sprinkle of cheese.
