Last night we had an all-out taco fest!
I had soaked some pinto beans overnight and used the pressure cooker to make some quick "refried" beans (really just cooked, seasoned and mashed). Then I pulled down one of my jars of garden tomato salsa, mashed up some guacamole, washed some lettuce, opened a container of Tofutti sour cream and sliced some olives.
Tortillas!!! That's the most exciting part!
I treated myself to a nice double-burner cast iron griddle this holiday season (it is the season of giving...) and Mike got me a traditional corn tortilla press.
I'm practically a tortilla factory now, I can make them so fast! This dinner came together surprisingly quickly and the kids declared it the best thing they'd ever ate! I can't wait to try pancakes on this giant griddle- I might actually finish making the pancakes in time to sit down and eat mine with the family now.
Here's the tortilla press in all its glory- The plastic wrap is a necessary evil to remove the tortillas and transfer them to the skillet. Someday I'll make a video.
Now I'm thinking enchiladas, arepas and pupusas are in my future on this griddle!
