montage! we're gonna need a montage!

I can't believe there was a time in my life when I did not make corn** tortillas on a daily basis.***

our fancy tortilla press. that's right; we use an imported baggie! ziploc, available in Managua.

tortillas ready for service; huevos rancheros, shrimp tacos... we make smaller ones for quesillo, and tiny ones for bocas with papaya salsa
employee soup; chicken with handfuls of mint, large cut vegetables; served with thick, hearty tortillas

**That is not to insinuate that I was too busy making other types of tortillas, but, rather, to clarify what type of tortillas are most predominant here.
***I can believe it, actually. There were times of sushi, salads, sandwiches on sourdough; foods that I love, that aren't necessarily enhanced by corn flour patties. I miss them.


  1. Just want you to know I am still reading your blog and looking forward to tortilla making lessons on your next trip home. - Kelly C

  2. Thanks, Kelly! we can definitely get our tortilla on. just make sure to get the fancy heavy-duty baggie.
