How To Make Corn Tortillas At Home:
Since meeting my boyfrfiend almost a year ago, we've been cooking together non stop. We are no chefs but we have shared with each other tips and recipes for homemade Mexican cooking. My boyfriend, Tomas, had made corn tortillas for his family and of course I helped. I've made flour tortillas before, but it's a few more steps and my tortillas came out the shape of Texas. When I saw how easy it was to make corn tortilass, I immediately made Maseca a must have in my kitchen.
All you need for corn Tortillas is: A large mixing bowl, a tortilla press, a plastic sandwhich bag to cover the press, a comal, tortilla warmer (optional), Maseca (masa), salt, warm water and your hands! Most of this stuff you can find at a Mexican meat market or at your grandmas house!
When I make corn tortillas I like to make a bunch so I can use them in multiple ways. Not only do I use them for tacos, but I fry them to make chips, I cut them up for migas, I make quesadillas and I also store any extra in the freezer. It's fun and super simple to make this easy Mexican Staple.
