Corn Tortilla

(Corn Tortilla) This is a 6-inch diameter corn tortilla that is made from whole corn, water, and lime, which contains no additives. We purchase these tortillas in a 2-pound package in our supermarket. We primarily use them for making toasted and roll-up sandwiches, mini-pizzas, and snacks. There is almost always a package of them in our refrigerator. We also have found that they are best cooked in a microwave oven, since baking them in a conventional oven causes them to dry out and flake on the surface before the inner ingredients are cooked. See the nutritional chart below.
