Roll Like a Pro
In Mexico everyone seems to be born with the ability to perfectly roll a corn tortilla. Try it, but be warned. It’s more difficult than it looks. Follow the steps in the photos and see how you do.
“A Salt Taco”
A hot, fresh corn tortilla sprinkled with salt and then rolled into a tight tube is a common snack. There’s even a name for it which is taquito de sal, in English a “little salt taco.” Try this. You will be surprised by how delicious it is.
How to Roll
A tortilla must be warm to roll it. Tortillas fresh from the tortillería are best. If your tortillas are cold warm them in a pan or on a griddle or heat them for about 20 seconds in the microwave. If your tortilla cracks it is because the tortilla is too cold or it is stale. Flour tortillas don’t work well for rolling.
That all there is to it. How did you do?
If you have never tried to roll a tortilla, I can almost guarantee that you won’t do it all that well on your first few attempts. After that, you will be a pro. Like any skill it takes practice.
