How to Make Tortillas
A tortilla is a thin flat cake that the Indians have been making from corn flour since ancient times. Later people began to make tortillas from wheat flour as well. Tortilla is one of the symbols of the Mexican cuisine. It is eaten as bread with sauces, salads, meat. It can be stuffed with various fillings. When made from corn flour only, it comes out a bit on the rough side, so we decided to use two kinds of flour, and we liked the result!
