Today we talked tortillas. Why is a burrito made with flour tortillas? On the other hand why are enchiladas prepared with corn tortillas. What is right for a hard or soft-shelled taco?
Gustavo explained that flour tortillas are popular in the Northern states of Mexico. They arrived from Spain in the 1500s.
Gustavo also shared the history of tortilla chips which traces its origin to San Antonio in 1912.
It’s summer so it’s time to quench your thirst. Gustavo suggests a flavorful agua fresca. This translates as “fresh water.” The base for this refreshing Mexican beverage is water and sugar. Cucumber and Tamarind are particularly refreshing versions.
