Corn tortillas have become a staple food for me. I wish I could find them in a bigger size though. Does anyone know of a brand of corn tortillas that are the size of regular flour tortillas?

Never found one. Perhaps they just don't hold together at a large size. Even the smaller ones fall apart sometimes.

You could make your own of course. You'll have to google, as my attempt to give a link to a product sold by the large online company named after the world's largest river was not permitted. The product is the VillaWare V5955 Grand Wrap Tortilla and Flatbread Maker, which makes 10" tortillas. Reviews were mixed; apparently there's a steep learning curve, but at least one celiac there was enthusiastic.

I got my tortilla press from that same company and love it, you can buy masa to make the tortillas at many regular grocery stores. One tip: always use a much bigger ball of dough than the directions say or you will end up with a thin tortilla that will fall apart. If it comes out thicker than you're used to, remember it's a "gordita" and fill it up with your favorite stuff and enjoy!

Make SURE you put wax paper in between the masa and the two sides of the press or you will have a big mess.

One warning, though. Even though the process is time consuming, once you've eaten real homemade tortillas, you will be spoiled in that the ones that come in a package will taste like cardboard... :D
