Stuck at Home? Achieve Homemade Tortillas Like a Pro With These Tortilladoras
A tortilla press or "tortilladora," as Mexicans call it, is a simple metal or wooden tool that has a base, top, and handle used to make corn tortillas. The press is used to make only corn tortillas because flour tortillas usually are rolled thin using a wooden rolling pin.
This quarantine period, what could be the best way to spend all your time indoors but to cook your favorite Mexican dishes? Craving for some burrito or quesadilla? Why don't you make one from scratch? Besides, nothing beats the taste of homemade corn tortillas because they taste much better and fresher than store-bought tortillas.
