Corn Tortillas

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
I remember making corn tortillas with my grandmother from nixtamal (corn) ground at the corner molino. We would then take the nixtamal home in a small peltre pot, she would add salt, water and a little lard, and we would make small balls, then pat them into circles with our hands, sort of like clapping, then place them on a comal (flat cast iron skillet) until they were done. We would often eat a few with butter on them.
