Using tortilla maker, place ball of dough slightly off the center of the tortilla maker, close the lid and using the large handle give one firm press until you hear the air start to squeak. Once you hear the squeak, release pressure and open lid. Repeat pressing as necessary to get desired thickness. Open tortilla maker. Cook 30 seconds per side.
