I make my own tortillas, enchilandas, and burritos out of masa harina flour. All I do is take two cups of the flour, little less than one cup of warm water add a tiny bit of salt and then I mix in a bunch of different mixed herbe. Unfortunately you don't have them in the US yet and even if you wanted to buy them, I cannot ship them across the border.

But I mix it all in with my hands then slowly add the water. You want it to not stick to your hands but have very little crumbs at the bottom of the bowl. Next you get two heavy pieces of plastic like two glad zip lock sandwich bags and roll them the dough into little balls. Inbetween the two pieces of plastic either with two saucers or a tortilla maker you squish them. You can cook them on fairly high heat in a non stick fry pan no oil. Cook each side till it blisters and then keep them warm in a tea towel, do not let them cook till they get hard, if they do put some water on them or stuff them in a microwave for a few seconds with water on them. I eat them with pretty well anything on them including goat cheese.

PUPUSASA's are made the identical way except turn the heat up and before you cook them put whatever you want like cheese, olives, chicken on one of the tortillas then, put the other uncooked tortilla on top, press edges together and then cook in fry pan. They are pronounced POOPOOSAS they are and El Salvadorian dish.

Now, you could get these herbs as you are in Canada.

I buy the flour at La Tiendonas they are located on the east side of 36 st se and just south of 17th Ave in Forest Lawn. I buy it in 10 lb bags and it is cheap. I buy all my beans there in 10 lb bags also. That way I don't have to keep driving across the city all the time. I pretty well make tortillas or pupusas etc. everyday. I get up in the morning and it takes me 10 minutes to make them before I go to work. That way I have them for work and when I get home. They also carry it in smaller bags, it and the beans. If you want a tortilla press and I have two, a huge one for burittos a small one. I bought them at the Happy Cooker in Market Mall.
