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. ;-)
