  • 3 cups of yellow corn flour not cornmeal and not corn starch *I've found this in health food shops in Madrid*
  • 1 cup + 1 Tablespoon of hot water as hot as you can handle
  • Pinch of salt
  • Chistorra or other sausage/fillings


  • Pour the corn flour into a large bowl and slowly add the hot water while mixing the dough together with your hands.
  • Add hot water (you may need more or less than indicated above) until you get a nice elastic dough with the consistency of Playdough.
  • Let the dough rest in the bowl for about an hour, covered with a damp cloth
  • Knead the dough for at least 5 minutes before making the talos
  • Sprinkle flour on a wooden work surface (either a butcher's block or cutting board)
  • Make a small ball of dough and put it in the center of your work surface
  • Slap the dough, adding more flour when necessary, until you have a thin tortilla (talo)
  • Slide the talo onto a hot frying pan or electric grill and cook each side until it starts to brown and bubble
  • Enjoy with your favorite filling (we recommend crispy fried chistorra sausage).
