Home Made Tortillas
I had the idea tonight to make fresh tortillas and top them with slowly cooked marinated chicken. I also made them thicker then normal and used fresh corn kernels for texture and a much more pronounced corn flavor. These tortillas were simply made with Masa flour which is a corn meal used in the of making tortillas and water. I also added a touch of kosher salt, fresh corn and chopped cilantro. After making a dough I used a small ice cream scoop to make small round balls which were placed between wax paper and flattened in a tortilla press (a saute pan can be used if you don't have a press) then on to a hot Plancha grill or cast iron pan to cook and brown on both sides.
