  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Put gluten-free masa harina and salt in a large bowl. Pour in about 1 cup of the hot water and mix with a large spoon. Add more water, about 1 tablespoon at a time until you are able to form a soft ball of dough. You may not need the entire amount of hot water to form a ball of dough that's soft, pliable, and easy to shape.
  3. Step 3

    Place the ball of dough on a clean surface and divide into 12 to 16 equal pieces. Roll into small balls and cover with a damp towel while you flatten each ball into a flat tortilla.
  4. Step 4

    Heat a cast-iron griddle or heavy, safe, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Don't add any fats or oil to the griddle.
  5. Step 5

    Shape tortillas and then, one at a time, place each tortilla on the hot griddle and cook. Flip after about 1 minute or when the tortilla just begins to brown. This should take about 2 minutes.
  6. Step 6

    Stack cooked tortillas and wrap in a towel or place in a tortilla bowl to keep them warm until serving.
