Tortillas are one of the staple foods in Mexico and are eaten with every meal. They are used both as a plate to hold tasty little fillings (tacos), or as a scoop to transfer beans and stews straight from the pot into your mouth!
Cool Chile stock everything you need for you to try your hand at making tortillas in your own home. If you don't have time however, we make to order, fresh corn tortillas too (which are GM, preservative and gluten free).
'El Monstruo' is our beautiful tortilla machine, that we run 5 days a week, and is capable of producing 3500 tortillas an hour!
We make up small batches of dough throughout the day to keep our tortillas as fresh as possible. Masa Harina is reconstituted with water to make this soft (but not sticky) dough, pressed through rollers, cut into disks, pre-cooked
by gas flame... why don't we just show you?
Here is a little movie of the day in the life of Cool Chile's 'El Monstruo'.
