Traditional Tortillas from Beginning to Eaten
Tortillas begin with the cultivation of maize. Maize goes through the process of nixtamalization which alters its chemistry to make its nutrients more bioavailable. Fresh nixtamal is made into dough, cooked quickly and eaten even more quickly. The fillings for tortillas are infinite.
