I haven't found better Mexican food anywhere in the United States than what we have here in Southern California. (My apologies to Texas, New Mexico and Arizona but there's a huge difference!)
You know it's a good sign when one of your favorite Mexican restaurants lets you take snapshots while they make their delicious homemade tortillas.
(Excuse the photo quality on these. I was so excited they allowed me to do this, I whipped my point and shoot out of my purse and took a few hurried snapshots!)
The dough is made earlier in the day and rolled into balls.
Each tortilla begins as one of these dough-balls.
The tortillas are then rolled out in a lot of flour so they don't stick.
She was a perfectionist. Each tortilla needed to be an exact thickness and shape.
Once the tortillas are shaped perfectly, it's time to cook them.
Many of the tortillas are fried and made into chips. The rest are served hot to accompany a patron's meal.
Throw in some fresh salsa and a margarita or two and …
Did I mention … delicious?!
