With a little smile, they asked if I would like to have a lesson in tortilla making. Of course, I happily agreed and we got started. They gave me the "receta" as we went, but the best part was getting to watch Pastor Alejandro's wife actually do it, step by step. And I tried to help as she showed me the steps.
Trying to do exactly what she does....
Hermano Daniel - he's a big tease - came through the kitchen about the time I was rolling one out and said "Ah, la hermana hace mapas" - she's making maps! It's a great joke with them that when the tortillas aren't rolled out perfectly round, then they look like maps. So we named each of my tortillas....Kansas, Maryland, Ohio etc...it was funny! I did do a few perfect ones, but mostly I made maps. I will say though - those maps tasted good!
You can obviously tell which one is mine!
You should watch them rolling out the tortillas, giving them a half turn, rolling again....as fast as greased lightning! I may have to buy a tortilla press and forget the rolling out. :)
Muchas gracias, hermana, por la leccion de como hacer tortillas de harina! Thank you so much, ladies, for the tortilla making lesson!
