Tortillas maison

l Switch language for recipe in French l

Craving Mexican food? Tortillas are a type of soft, thin flatbread made from corn in the Mexican and Central America . In northern Mexico and the Tex-Mex food the corn flour is replaced with wheat flour . Currently , Mexicans consume an average of about 90 kilograms of tortillas a year, that is to say about 250 grams per day. Tortillas are eaten as an accompanying starchy , somewhat like bread, here, in France !

The recipe is quite easy. I propose a serving suggestion at the end of recipe.
