Tortillas by hand

One of the most favourite by far are tortillas made by hand. They depart such a morish(more you eat the more you want)taste that keeps you wanting more.Its taken awhile to put this into place as people were beginning to ask for the real McCoy!!!

So I invited Rosa to come during the high season and work her magic fingers into molding and cooking on the comal these delicious tortillas.

The photo below was taken by two of my guests who stayed with me a couple of nights…………. They loved the Salbutes that we prepared for them.Making the tortillas for salbutes has a little different technique than the normal tortillas…………….. no Im not going to give you the secret!!!!! Oh well maybe if you really want to know………….call me or come and visit and taste them for yourself.Panuchos are another favourite again with tortillas filled with refried beans but again another way to prepare the masa.

Salbutes prepared here at the pickled onion photo by Riza and Kim

shy Rosa doing her stuff. Notice her huipil she made it herself




Rosa comes by around 11.30 am to start her work. She thoroughly cleans her area first.

Also she is the w ife of Zacaria the gardner!

Ive managed to make a few myself but my fingers are not as flexible as Rosas Maybe in time
