Best Corn Tortillas, August 2012
Genuine corn tortillas are created using a process called nixtamalization, in which the corn is soaked and cooked in an alkaline solution, then ground into masa and hand pressed. The disks—brightly colored and downy soft—emit the aroma of roasted corn. Rocio's Mole de Los Dioses forms corn tortillas that have the gentle scent of a just-fried egg and are divine vessels for scooping up moles and Mexican stews. » 8255 Sunland Blvd., Sun Valley.
