Just a quick little recipe. No pictures. Not really very interesting - but quite tasty and worth sharing.

Corn tortillas are pretty easy to make, but you do need a tortilla press. I have honed this recipe until quite satisfied, and this is what i came up with:

1/2 C Masa Harina
1/2 C Whole Wheat Flour
Pinch of Vegetable Shortening (Spectrum brand) about a teaspoon maybe

Add the amount of water to the flour as instructed on the package of masa, but use half masa and half white whole wheat flour plus a little shortening. Roll into little balls and coat in some salty flour, sprinkle salty flour on bottom of tortilla press and on top of ball of dough, press and cook in a pan on medium high about 2 minutes each side and store in a tortilla warmer until ready to eat. Don't let them get too brown or they'll be stiff - or keep cooking them until they turn into chips. Delish! Perfect for fish tacos.

Thank you husband for catching some shark last weekend to turn into delicious fish tacos!
