This is a story of tortillas, for tortillas make the taco. Whatever you do in the shell is less important than the shell, and nothing is close to a freshly made corn tortilla to "make" the taco.
For some reason I have white corn masa, but I prefer yellow. The press is made of mesquite wood, brought to me by my daughter.
Pressed. Not to thin to handle, but as thin as possible.
Cooked on a cast iron griddle, on the Weber, they look pale!
With the right stuff, this is a light lunch that is made really special with the fresh tortilla.
