I have a Mexican heritage – in fact, my father was born in Mexico. I was even born in Mexico (well, New Mexico). At Alba family reunions there is a lot of Spanish spoken, and we have quite a family that is in Mexico still (although all of my aunts and uncles are in the U.S.). You’d think that it would be easy to get a recipe for tortillas – but alas, it is all done by how the masa feels, no measuring. So I had to get this recipe from a white lady in Idaho – go figure. But they are the bomb.
- 4 cups flour (we mix 1/2 wheat, and have done 1/4 masa)
- 1 1/3 cups warm water
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup oil
Mix it all up, make little balls, roll them out, and cook on medium+ heat (no oil, no-stick, etc.) until they are the right color.
