I just realized today how much I miss fajitas! mmmmmmm....fajitas.
Anyone know of some good torilla shells? I tried one brand that was basically like eating plastic, then I realized that I was supposed to heat them up. Then it was like eating warm plastic!!!
Help! I really want some fajitas ;)

I have used Mission brand corn tortilla--spray with oil and heat in oven.

Even better however is if you can make your own shells. Get some MaSeCa brand Masa Harina (corn flour) and follow the directions on the bag. It's nothing more than mixing the masa with water to make a dough. It's easier if you have a tortilla press but it you don't you can press the dough between two plates with wax paper on them. Homemade corn tortillas are nothign like the store bought and are much more similar to flour tortillas.

Misson are good, I prefer El Milargro which I can buy at wal mart. I heat it on a griddle over the stove or over a low flame on the burner.

Could not have said it better myself!

You can also lightly brush them with oil and bake until crispy in the oven for corn chips which also has many uses.

Any idea where you can buy the Masa Harina? or a tortilla shell press?

Wal-Mart sells Masa Harina in the Latin food section locally, but we have a large Latin population. If you have a Latin grocer, they will most likely sell a press.

You've got me hankering for fahitas now! (And huevos ranchero...) I'm going to have to do a corn challenge this weekend! :D Wish me luck!

I"m in Canada. Not sure if I can get any of that here! I'll definitely try to make my own. I now have a weekend project! Thanks!

I have seen MaSeCa in most regular grocery stores--check the international sections if they have one. Be careful about which brand you buy--the first brand I tried had wheat cc in it due to being processed with wheat flour. I noticed only after it made me sick and after writing to the company that the bag had a warning that said "May contain wheat". The MaSeCa brand is safe and has not given me any symtpoms.

For the press I had to order one from the big A website. I looked all over for one locally but could not find one anywhere. If you live in an area with a big Hispanic population you may have more luck.

I got my press in the supermarket in a neighborhood with a high hispanic population. Actually, I have learned to love this store....all kinds of goodies. When you master tortillas, move on to arepas!
