 How To Make Gorditas

 A tortilla press is a vital piece of equipment necessary in order to make a batch of authentic gorditas. Choose a device with an enamel coating & one made from cast iron or wood for the best results. For more information, details & comprehensive visuals that guide you through each step of the process on how to prepare gorditas from scratch, look to tutorials that explain masa harina, masa & the tortilla press.

It is necessary to use thick plastic to prevent sticking. Once the gorditas have been pressed, stacking them between parchment paper makes them easier to handle once it’s time for cooking. 

Cut a 7-inch square from a heavy duty zip top freezer bag leaving one side folded & attached. Position the tortilla press on a sturdy surface, open the top & place the plastic over the base. Lift the plastic & place one piece of portioned dough in the center, then cover again. Press the maker closed, then give a slight push. Lift the maker & remove the dough circle. It should measure approximately 3 1/2-inches by 1/8-inch thick. Carefully peel away the top piece of plastic & place the dough round onto a parchment paper-lined quarter sheet pan. Repeat the process until all of the dough has been pressed. Stack the tortillas one on top of the other placing a small square of parchment paper between each. Proceed according to recipe instructions.
