Students will be taught how to measure and mix ingredients for corn tortillas. Learners will shape the dough into tortillas and then cook them on a stovetop using a frying pan or griddle. Once the tortillas have been cooked, students may make them into quesadillas or chorizo soft tacos. We will be talking about Mesoamericans developing nixtamalization (process of soaking corn in an alkaline solution) which cleaned toxins from the corn and made it more nutritious. Learners will also talk...
Students will learn to measure dry and wet ingredients. Students will learn how to press corn tortillas 3 different ways. Students will learn to use a stove burner safely to cook food.

1 file available upon enrollment* Recipe handout - will be sent once students are registered. * We will be using corn masa flour (Masa Instantánea de Maíz, see class photo). One brand is Maseca. It can be found in many supermarkets and Walmarts, usually near the wheat flour. Contact me if you need help finding it. Links to Amazon Fresh and Target above. * For tortilla toppings, students may buy chorizo and/or cheese. Chorizo is available in soy, pork, and beef forms. It's highly seasoned, not crazy spicy. The soy one tastes pretty similar to the meat versions. Chorizo is also available in supermarkets, Target, and Walmart. * Gallon sized Ziploc style bag and scissors - I will demonstrate using a tortilla press, as well as pressing tortillas with the bottom of a cold frying pan, and rolling with a rolling pin. I anticipate most of the students won't have a tortilla press and that is ok! For all of these methods, it's best to have a gallon sized ziploc style bag and scissors. I will show the students how to cut the bag in class. The plastic helps keep the tortilla shape when the dough is raw. Plastic wrap also works, although not quite as well. * frying pan or griddle - nonstick or cast iron are best * stove burner
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students will be using a stove burner to complete the lesson. Please help your student with this step if you feel it is needed. Students will not use sharp knives. Students will be using corn masa flour so students with corn allergies shouldn't make these. Some brands of corn masa flour are gluten free (check label), so they are a good option for those with gluten issues.

I like to teach about the science and techniques behind specific dishes so learners can relate prior experience and apply the information in their own future cooking projects. It's fun to make less common things like mozzarella and marshmallows. ...
