Perfect Your Puff

Ah, the legendary tortilla puff. The puff is to tortilla making what the crumb is to bread baking: a sign that your creation will be airy, light and ever-so moist. It's made possible by trapped moisture that meets heat. The moisture is trapped by quickly searing a light crust onto both sides of the tortilla, creating a steam pocket. As the pressure builds, it expands like a balloon. To perfect your puff, you'll want to focus on sufficient moisture to create the steam, the right amount of even compression (the Doña Rosa press will get you there) and temperature. No heat, no puff.
