Thanks for the response, Cristina.
there are few Mexicans, whether in Mexico or in the USA, who still make their own tortillas on a daily basis.
Actually, I made that point first. I held back a bit out of politeness.
You are a model of self control, girl!
It breaks my heart here to see so many Mexicans buy the crappy tortillas that come from Texas! I'm sure they are good in TX but we have many tortillerias (and lesbians) here.
The same people that offered me my own brand of masa harina also offered me tortillas with a 6 month shelf life. Yummy nummy woohoo!
Edited to say- PDX may be an interesting island, like Chicago, where some old traditions have stayed even though they've been diluted in Mexico.
