Peach Salsa with Homemade Corn Tortillas

Peach Salsa with Homemade Corn Tortillas by Ng @ Whats for Dinner?You can't really buy real Mexican or even Tex-Mex in Ireland. Sure they sell flour tortillas and mild salsa but who wants to eat that??? What I miss most are corn tortillas. So I had my sister bring me a bag of masa mix so I could make my own.

Makes 12-15
2 cups of Masa mix
1 1/4- 1 1/2 cup water

Slowly mix the water into the masa. Kneed with your hands. The dough should be really smooth and not too wet or dry. Divide and roll into golf ball sized balls.

Flatten each ball into a tortilla using a press (I don't have a press so I used a book). Place one ball inbetween baking paper or wax paper and flatten with big book. Put the flatten ball in the big book and sit on the book.

Bring a dry frying pan to a med high heat cook each tortilla for about 30 sec a side or until lightly browned.

makes 1 1/2 cups
2 ripe peaches
1/2 small red onions
1/2 sweet red pepper
1 hot red or green pepper
1 small handful of fresh coriander or cilantro
1/2 tsp cummin
salt and pepper

Chop the peaches, onions, peppers and coriander. Mix together with cummin, salt and pepper. Enjoy right away or chill in the frig for a few hours frist.


  1. Are peaches in season over there? Your tortillas are very professional looking.

  2. When I saw them, I thought they had come out of a bag because they look so uniform and perfectly done. This reminds me of the time we made corn tortillas together during passover, and we made them in under 17 minutes so the dough wouldn't rise.

  3. Peaches are from Spain, I don't know if they even grow them here. I remember our passover tortillas! Mom wouldn't eat them!
