Homemade tortillas are easier than you may think to make— here’s my gluten-free recipe that takes all our Mexican fare up a notch.
Parades, festivals of street food, flamenco dances, and of course, parties, take over town the first week of August.

jas can be made as a side dish for a summer meal, awesome vegetarian tacos or used as the stuffing for very yummy tamales or gorditas. I made Rajas for Cinco de Mayo as one of my taco options and my guests were completely floored. They are simple to make with tasty results. They are great for entertaining because you can make them in advance. I had a ton of requests for this recipe, so here you go. Fresh ingredients, simply prepared, with incredible results, this is an eat-drink-garden kind of a recipe.
