Home-made corn tortillas in Houston

Jaymes | Feb 3, 201303:42 PM     4

So, during our recent Tamal Crawl, I was asked where I buy fresh, home-made corn tortillas.

I live in Katy, not far from one of the locations of Tacos la Bala. I don't know about other locations but, at Katy, when you order them, a very nice little lady goes into the kitchen and makes you some.

How about y'all? Any excellent tortillarias?

And, as many of you certainly know, but some may not, it's not difficult to make your own fresh corn tortillas. I've lived lots of places where buying fresh tortillas is an impossibility. It may surprise you to know that, in those locales, you can buy canned tortillas, but they're just about as horrible as you'd imagine. And my husband was a native Texan that got grumpy with no tortillas. So I bought a tortilla press during a visit home, and had my family send me the packages of Masa Harina. All you do from there is to add a little water, roll your masa into a small ball, and press it out. There is a technique to it, of course, but there are lots of more detailed instructions online for anyone interested in trying it.
