How to make the perfect Guatemalan Tortilla

How to make the perfect Guatemalan Tortilla

Well, for starters you need ‘real’ nixtamalized maize dough (nothing of the maseca flour that Manolo uses), a ‘real’ comal (baked clay griddle) and you need to use ‘real’ leña (wood logs, quite possibly pine). After that, you need a good pair of hand to tortear (hit into shape) a real looking tortilla. You don’t need no stinking mold to shape your tortillas ma’am. ;-)

Okay, go ahead now and make your own Guatemalan tortillas! Easier said than done, certainly. ;-)
