Do tamales and tortillas start from the same masa flour? Planning to make some for first time tomorrow.

Yes, as long as u know you will be making corn tortillas, and if you don't have a tortilla press you can use a frying pan to flatten them, because a thick corn tortilla just isn't that great, speaking from experience ;p

I should have been more clear. I will be making tamales today. I have masa I've used previously to make tortillas. Is this the same flour I need for tamales?
