Divide the dough into 20 balls (conventional size) or 10 balls (burrito or wrap size), after that, let stand approximately 20 minutes.

Then, heat a comal or a good size non-stick pan, over medium heat. Next, roll out each ball, one at the time, and start cooking, approximately 30 seconds per side.
