Bob's Red Mill's Masa Harina makes incredible fresh corn tortillas, of course, but did you know there’s a world of possibilities in this bag? Made with dried corn kernels that have been cooked and soaked in limewater before grinding, this flour is ideal for traditional foods like tamales and pupusas, but it’s also a fantastic addition to baked goods. Use it as breading or to thicken chili and soup.
While they’re similar, corn masa is very different from cornmeal (don’t swap the two). It’s finer, and the method of preparation is very different: dried yellow or white corn kernels are soaked in water and lime. Then the skins are removed and the remaining corn kernels are dried and ground into corn flour perfect for masa dough.
As with fresh masa, our masa harina makes superior corn tortillas: just mix with water and a little salt to create a smooth, springy dough. Then divide the dough into two-inch balls that you’ll press and cook on a hot griddle. Top them with your favorite fillings and sauces—don’t forget the lime wedges!
Organic Masa Harina flour results in delicious corn tortillas every time, which means Taco Tuesday is now more than just a meal, it's also a family or date night activity. After all, that first perfectly smooth and pliable corn tortilla you make by hand is not only brag-worthy, but—and maybe it's just our perception—we could swear it makes the meal taste that much better.
