YELLOW CORN TORTILLA 15CM - FOR FRYING ONLY
Known as tlaxcalli in ancient times, has being a staple food in ancient Mexico since 3,500 years ago
Tortillas are still a must in almost every Mexican family meal, dipped in sauces or to make tacos.
The nixtamalization process that tortillas go through significantly enriches the nutritional value of maize as a source of vitamins, minerals (calcium) and protein.
How to use them:
They can be cut into triangles and fried to make tortilla chips to prepare chilaquiles with sauce or just to be dipped in cheese, guacamole or a sauce of your preference.
Another option is to put shreded chicken, mashed potatoes or cooked mince, roll the tortilla to make it look like a thin flute and fry until crispy to get golden flautas, put 4 on a plate and top them with shredded lettuce, sour cream, crumbled fresh cheese and your favourite salsa.
How to warm them:
You can use these tortillas when you want to make tortilla chips by cutting them into triangles and then frying them for about 20 seconds or by baking them in the oven for 15 minutes (healthier option).
