Tortilla Time at the Paragon!

Tortillas are a familiar food to most of us. We use them to make tacos, burritos, and many other foods. And while we know that they can be used to make a quick meal, did you know that they themselves are quick and easy to make? We went to our kitchen staff to find out exactly how to make perfect tortillas:

Heat up a pan on the stove. Combine 2 cups of corn flour with 1 1/2 cups of warm water. Add 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and then blend the mixture with your hands. Mix until the dough doesn’t stick to your hands. If it continues sticking to your hands, add additional flour. Pull dough apart and make 10 dough balls. Take one and flatten it with a tortilla press before putting it in the pan. When the side down becomes golden, flip it over. These tortillas will stay fresh for 3 days.

If you’re in a rush and don’t have time to make a traditional meal, sprinkle salt on your tortilla and eat as is.
