  • Hey happy Cinco de Mayo!
    So weird that you posted that about the tortillas because I just picked up a sack of ‘harina de maiz’ at the store. I’ve made flour tortillas before, but without a tortilla press they came out more like naan. I’ll let you know how the corn ones turn out!
    PS I made your smoky bean burritos tonight!

    1. But perhaps not that weird, since maybe you were getting maiz because it was Cinco de Mayo and I was making tostadas because it was Cinco de Mayo. Still a little weird. I really want to know how they turn out. Do you have to have any special equipment to make it? I’m envisioning rocks and weird primitive stuff. Make me some extras! And if you can avoid it, don’t add any xanthan gum 🙂

  • Hey there
    Just stumbled upon your blog. FYI Canola oil is not the best oil to be consuming. Essentially it is motor oil derived from rape seed oil…a very bitter oil that has been modified for our consumtion. better choices…grapeseed,sunflower, walnut, almond, sesame, coconut…

    1. Thanks! I was convinced by the book The Spectrum that canola is far better than even olive oil, primarily for its Omega 3 to Omega 6 ratio. But not too much focus was on the process used to make it and the effects on our body. I have heard before that any oils which are crystal clear probably got that way by harsh processing, sometimes involving bleach-like chemicals. I’ll keep my eye out for any articles or information about that.

  • I love Claire’s Corner Copia! I went to Wesleyan University (Middletown, CT) and made quite a few trips to the veggie restaurant in New Haven 🙂 This recipe looks great.

  • Wow, this looks so tasty , I like your blog, you deserve to be added to my list of 100 blog using CommentLuv for sure 🙂

  • Thanks! Readers: Commentluv is a feature I just added that allows commenters who also have blogs to show their most recent blog post under their comment, as shown above. Along with some love!

  • I’m not so good about following the latest nutritional news. To simplify my life I try to buy food with the shortest list of ingredients and unfamiliar words. Not easy.
    So, do you have a good recipe for fish ‘n chip with beer in the batter? 🙂

  • I do not remember now how I stumbled across your blog but it is quite interesting! I had been a vegetarian in the past until I gave into meat again. Then after getting married, going vegan or vegetarian seems to be impossible with the carnivore I live with. 🙂 I have to tell you though that I make (vegetarian) tostadas often since my husband simply loves them, but I do not fry the tortillas. My grandma in Mexico did, but I found that I could save on the calories and toast them in the oven. I also make my own tomatillo sauce (green sauce) to put on top! I am looking forward using some of your recipes!

  • I know this delicious recipe and blog entry are from a couple of years ago, but if you haven’t already tried to make your own tortillas it’s surprisingly easy! There are tons of recipes on the web, however I have tried many and found that the one printed on the bag of masa works perfectly fine. Helps to have a tortilla press, but alternately you could just use a rolling pin with the dough ball between a gallon zip lock (sides cut open so it’s like a book you can open and insert the dough). You need the zip lock for the press anyway, so it’s not that different! Throw them on a skillet/ griddle for a minute or two each side or just fry them up- haven’t tried that, but I’m sure it would be yummy.
