Last weekend, we had a family dinner for my mom's birthday, which also falls on Cinco de Mayo. Most always, we celebrate with a Mexican meal, because we all happen to love that cuisine very much. This year my bro was in charge, and we had steak and shrimp tacos marinated in a pureed combo of ancho chile, onion, garlic, cilantro, lime and oil - YUM. He also made homemade corn tortillas. I usually prefer flour, probably because those tortillas are usually bigger and I have an eating problem, but these corn ones were wonderful. He used this Rick Bayless recipe, requiring only one ingredient: Masa Harina (can be found at Whole Foods). How simple is that?! At least, it looked simple, I just watched because I'm pregnant and lazy. But my 5-year old loved helping!
