Homemade Corn Tortillas


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!

This is so great - a big downfall of being in NY is the lack of Mexican culture and food which is surprising and tragic. So glad your blog will keep that food alive out here!
