Corn tortillas

Okay, so I was kind of annoyed to find that refrigerated corn tortillas out of the bag taste like crap. But I had a brainwave today, when I realized that I like the cooked corn tortillas (tortilla chips, taco shells, tostadas, etc.) So I did something clever and deep-fat fried some.

OH. MY. GOODNESS! They ROCK! Those are so delicious! I am buying corn tortillas from now on! (Might get flour ones for those times I'm too lazy to cook the corn ones, but still...)

Silly girl! Of *course* they taste lousy "raw"... you are supposed to pan fry *either* sort of tortilla.

Get a frying pan or griddle big enough for the tortilla to lie flat. Heat the pan and toss in the tortilla to brown it.

Flour tortillas are better for some things, corn for others.

Fried flour tortillas? Hmm... well, not necessary, I like flour tortillas "raw".

Just "heated" until you get some brown spots. Not until crisp.

That's really disgusting. I don't know if I can be friends with you any more.

(Kidding, because the internet makes everything sound more serious than it is. That is disgusting, though.)

Don't all the companies deep fry them?
