  3. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  4. Divide the dough into equal portions and keep them covered with a damp towel.
  5. Using your hands and a smooth surface, get a ping ball sized amount of dough and shape it into a rope.
  6. Using a tortilla press lined with plastic wrap, press out all ropes into flat ovals.
  7. Peel the sheet on top and flip the huarache onto your hand.
  8. Remove the last sheet and then place the huarache onto the hot pan.
  9. Cook for one minute, then carefully flip it and cook for 1-2 more minutes.
