For those of us for whom the closest thing to authentic Mexican food comes pre-packaged in the grocery store, this DIY Tortilla Kit will open your eyes (and mouth) to how good corn tortillas can really taste.
The kit contains an 8" tortilla press to get your tortillas the perfect thinness (much better than just smushing with your bare hands), a hand-woven straw basket and lid for keeping your tortillas warm at the table, a bag of Maseca corn tortilla mix (the authentic stuff! And enough to make about 12 tortillas), and a bag each of Chile Ancho, Chile Guajillo, and Chile Pequin to optionally give your tortillas some smoke or heat.
Dream up some wacky taco fillings to debut with your fresh tortillas, or start with a dead-simple classic (carnitas!)
