Take a look at the Santa Fe School of Cooking site. I bet you can even talk to someone there for more info. http://santafeschoolofcooking.com/On-line_Market/Specialty_Foods/index.html

I don't think you can use cornmeal or corn flour to make tortillas. In order to make masa, the cornmeal needs to be treated and processed with slake lime. Process is called nixtamalization and it softens the corn so that you can make the masa for the tortilla. I would search for blue corn masa. I think blue corn masa can be ordered online at Amazon.

Actually, there are probably as many recipes out there calling for blue cornmeal, if not more, as recipes that call for blue masa. I'm wondering if blue masa is hard to find and if the tortillas are a cross between a corn and flour tortilla. They also call for ap flour.
