Our tortillas are fresh and tasty, they go well with many dishes.
Be sure to use them with carnitas or carne asada for your home-made tacos. But in reality, you can make a taco out of anything you want. That's how a lot of people eat in many countries of Latin-America. Lots of people there eat tortillas daily with their meals instead of bread. This is an important source of fiber, iron and vitamins for them.
This is a great trick to keep your kids happy when they come from school and lunch isn't ready yet. I learned this one from my grandma while growing up.
Simply heat up a tortilla, squeeze some lime juice on it, add a pinch of salt and roll it. Just make sure to use real juice and not bottled one.
HOW TO HEAT UP A TORTILLA?
The easiest way is of course to throw them in the microwave. Be sure to wrap your tortillas in a kitchen-towel and sprinkle them with a bit of water so they stay moist.
If you have a small toaster-oven, that's even better.
The best method I know though, is on a "small comal". I have memories as a child impatiently waiting for my warm tortillas to come out (it doesn't take that long, trust me). A few years ago, I tried to find that "small comal" online. Unable to do so, I finally called my mom, who confessed: "Oh that thing? It wasn't really a comal... it came with the pressure-cooker, we just used it as such." True story.
So I had no remedy but to find out what she was talking about. It was, in fact, a pressure-cooker canning rack. So I bought one, and now use it as my "comalito" at home.
My dad, on the other hand, was more like a Rambo-style-tortilla-heater. He would just throw the darn things on the burner grate and flip by hand.
I am posting the link here for you. I have no relation to the product and make no money on this. Words of caution: this is not an approved use by the manufacturer, so please be careful with it, it can get really hot, and please don't use it unless you have a gas stove!
