Once you master the technique of making your own corn tortillas, try a few variations, such as these Dark Red Chile Tortillas. The deep red color and hint of spiciness will completely change the personality of any taco or tostada recipe.
Just a note: We found that powdered chile will not produce good results when making these tortillas. So even though making your own chile puree can be a bit time consuming, the flavor and color of your tortillas will be superb. And to make your own tortilla chips: Cut cooked tortillas into quarters and fry in hot vegetable oil. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with sea salt. And enjoy.
