Bob’s Red Mill Organic Masa Harina flour is the perfect pantry staple for lovers of Mexican and Latin American foods. It is made from certified organic corn that has been cooked, treated with limewater and ground into a fine flour. Ideal for making homemade corn tortillas, sopes and pupusas.
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.
