Tortillas???
« on: April 19, 2018, 08:07:29 AM »
Does anyone know where I can buy corn tortillas in London? All I can find are flour ones which are great for burritos. But I want to make tacos and I prefer corn tortillas for that....not the crunchy ones, the soft ones. Any ideas?

Signed,
Desperate for Authentic Mexican Food in London 😂

You can find these at most grocery stores.  They are corn tortillas and pretty good.

These are as good as they get, but online:

Was going to say, you have to go to the Mexican section but you can definitely get them at Sainsbury's :)

Never seen these before!!  :o
Are they proper pure corn?  Or a corn & wheat flour mix?

Corn!  We have to be gluten free at our house so wheat is banned.   :D

They've been around about a year now.  We have found that they need to be warmed up in a skillet versus a microwave.  Just our preference.

Ahh!  I need to try those!  I haven't found a good recipe for making my own, so my press sits on a shelf being an interesting decoration.  *sigh*

I was really craving the taste of maseca one night so I just up and made my own corn tortillas! Its really easy if you have the flour - kinda like making pancakes. I dont have a special press, just use a rolling pin.

Mexica has the maseca, or amazon I believe does as well.

If you can find Masa, there are usually recipes on the bag for things like tortillas and tamales. Daughter has a Mexican-American friend who is supposed to be sending her mom's recipe for tamales - will ask her to get the tortilla one. I have a good one for flour tortillas, but not the same thing!
