I've read a few taco threads involving homemade corn tortillas...and they look amazing! Does anyone have a magic recipe. We've abandoned AP flour at our house, but would love to put tacos back on the menu. Any help is greatly appreciated. :roll:

Thanks,
Randy

The recipe is simple. It is getting your texture right, that is the key, but with just a little practice, it is about as easy as going to the store, and buying them. I would buy a tortilla press, if you don't already have one.

I pounded down Dos Equis Ambars whilst she had apps & desert. I couldn't help but think of how they made their chips ????

Quality thin corn torts fried in lard would be my guess. To quote a famous guy, "Pork fat rules".

I make a crapload of "homemade tortilla chips."

We just get a stack of corn torts from Sams. Cut into 1/6's. Deep Fry at 350F at 1.5 - 2 minutes, or until they get the right color.

Salt immediately and enjoy. I've messed with lime, but haven't perfected that part of it yet.

I want to make homemade corn torts themselves, but I haven't gotten around to it get.

LOL! I'm glad I wasn't the only one wondering! :laugh:
Too many Dos Equis! Which isn't a bad thing.

When you drink Dos Equis, you think you are the most interesting man in the world. :heh:

Being in TX, I would say there is a good chance you can find a Tortilleria, or Mexican grocery, that sells the fresh masa dough. If you can, it is much better than the dry stuff. If you can't find it, any Masa Harina will do. I buy Maseca brand, mainly because that is all I can find at my local stores.
