Corn Tortillas with Chorizo
Makes 12 tortillas
2 c. corn flour
1-2 c. warm water (check directions on corn flour package for exact amount)
1 tsp. salt
3 chorizos, chopped finely
1 onion, chopped
1 avocado, mashed
2 tomatoes, chopped
In a frying pan, cook the onion in a little oil until translucent. Set aside.
Mix the corn flour and water according to the instructions on your corn flour package. It should be a barely damp dough that holds together well.
Add the onions and chorizo bits to the dough and knead until thoroughly distributed.
Heat oil in a frying pan (spray oil works best). Take a 1″ ball of tortilla dough and pat out into a round. Place in the hot pan and cook until golden. Flip and cook until golden on the other side, this takes about 3 minutes per side.
Top each tortilla with avocado and tomato and serve.Print or share this recipe using the icons above!
