Red Chile Tortillas

Make these pretty, orange-colored tortillas that are made with red chile sauce in honor of Día de Los Muertos.

  • Servings 16
  • 30
  • Medium



  • 1 cup Instant Corn Masa Flour
  • ½ tsp. Baking Powder
  • ¼ tsp. Salt
  • ½ cup Red Chile Sauce
  • ½ cup Hot Water



  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of your dry ingredients. In a measuring cup, mix together your water and chile sauce.
  2. Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry mixing well for about 4 minutes until it’s completely smooth. If it seems too dry, add a little liquid (about 1 tsp. at a time), but make sure it doesn’t get sticky.
  3. Cut the dough into 8 golf ball size pieces. To ensure they are even in size you can weigh them on a baking scale.
  4. Line your tortilla press with wax paper. Place the ball in the center of the press and push down firmly until it is completely flattened.
  5. You can cook the tortillas on a griddle or in a cast iron skillet. The flatter the surface, the better. After about 30 seconds, flip the tortilla and again cook for about 30 seconds.
  6. Once you remove the tortilla from the griddle, immediately place in your tortilla basket to keep them warm.
  7. Fill tacos with shredded beef/pork/chicken/shrimp and desired toppings.
