Are you looking for organic Masa Harina for your homemade tortillas?
I get this question all the time and I always refer people to this Bob’s Red Mill Organic Masa Harina:
It’s organic, non-GMO, and it also happens to be the one that I prefer for taste purposes too!
But please keep in mind that Bob’s has two choices for Masa Harina and only one of them is organic!
Note the difference in packaging in this pic:
While similar, the Organic option on the right has that distinct green “Organic” banner across the top.
It also has a non-GMO badge on the bottom of the bag’s back side.
There’s no significant taste difference between these two options, but I always reach for the Organic choice when available.
For reference, I recently did a taste test of the 3 most common brands you’ll come across in the States:
And found that Bob’s had a more savory, concentrated corn flavor than the other choices, so it’s been at the top of my list for awhile now. Testing the 3 Masa Harina brands.
Once you’ve got Masa Harina in the house then it’s time to make some tortillas — if you’re new to this process you’re in for a treat as homemade tortillas blow away store-bought options!
And don’t sweat it too much as the process is quite easy. You’re just adding some water and salt to the Masa Harina to form masa dough:
Then flattening the dough balls with a skillet or casserole dish. No tortilla press needed!
And then giving them a couple minutes in a dry skillet.
These are super satisfying tortillas and they’ll have you questioning the store-bought tortillas you’ve been buying all your life 🙂 Full instructions for making corn tortillas.
