Turn your basic tortilla recipe into a boujee edible creation with very little effort. It’s also a great way to enhance the flavor of your tortillas. I used criollo cilantro leaves and it’s floral buds but you can use any edible herb or flowers. They tasted great! The tortilla press was made by my father. It holds a very special place in my heart because he made it after his stroke. It was one of the first things he made and although he has left sided paralysis, he still managed to make my beautiful press. He also made one for my cousin. I will treasure it forever. If you don’t have a tortilla press, you can roll them by hand.
WHAT IS CRIOLLO CILANTRO?
Creole cilantro, has been cultivated for centuries in Oaxaca, Mexico. It's a cilantro that grows into a fern leaf frill immediately, rather than staying in that typical flat leaf that you normally see in cilantro. I think it’s very whimsical and has tiny beautiful lavender or white flowers. The flowers taste incredible. I think criollo cilantro taste nicer then the regular one.
I used Maseca Masa Flour, it’s an instant masa flour and very easy to work with but you can use your favorite corn tortilla recipe to make these. You will find this recipe to be very easy but people will think they took hours to make. I love how they turn out. Depending on the size you make, you can get about 12 to 16 tortillas. I’ve even made 18.
