we have some sort of taco dish a few times a week at my house. the staples of this meal are homemade tortillas, and a tangy, lime cashew cream. these corn tortillas are super easy to make, and really taste so much better than the store bought variety. start with about a cup of
, ¾ cup of really hot water, and a dash of sea salt. mix together, and form into about 5-6 small balls, flatten with a
, (a press makes the process even easier, just place your dough between two pieces of wax paper and press.) and grill on a hot griddle with no oil. the trick is to cook them while the mix is still warm, and to also serve them warm. for the cashew cream try
