Flour tortillas are like 10 for 2 dollars
Corn tortillas you get a stack of 50
any idea why?
I suspect it's tied to the fact(I think)that they are healthier, hence less popular. Perhaps easier/cheaper to make, though...
Probably because corn is one of the most heavily subsidized crops in America? Just a shot in the dark.
I like those soft corn tortillas. Cut em up into triangles and immersion fry them for basically homemade tortilla chips. And you can cook them in peanut oil rather than nasty fatty old palm oil.
All of the above + less processing?
Four corn tortillas are about the size of one flour tortilla.
wheat is more expensive than corn.
ding ding ding! we have a winner!
so corn tortillas are cheaper because you pay for them with your tax dollars.
I should mention that the vast majority of corn produced in America is grown for industrial and agricultural purposes and not fit for human consumption, but I can only assume that the corn grown for food processing can be lumped into the same subsidies as the corn grown for plastic.
Probably. Corn tortillas annoy me because they require more heating up than do the wheat ones, and rip if you look at them funny. But nothing compares to 3 mini-burritos made of spicy stewed pork, home-made refried beans, avocado chunks and zesty cheddar rolled into hot, fresh corn tortillas.
Cuz you're in Seattle, DoH!
but Flour is a bit more expensive here too
quite a delicious +1
Do they have high fructose corn syrup in them?
they should have 2 ingredients: masa (milled corn flour) and water.
anything else is extra.
I was going to consult my Rachael Ray 30 minute meals cookbook this weekend to see whats for dinner....but looks like I found it right here on TB!! Can you post your spicy stewed pork recipie please?
Cut some pork roast into 1-inch pieces, or whatever size you fancy, and put it in a crock pot with some vinegar, and your favorite green tomatillo salsa (must be spicy), and some Tobasco sauce to taste. Cook for about a day or so. Failing a crock pot, just use a regular pot and stew for about 6 hours, or until it starts to fall apart. Really simple, and easily adjustable.

Corn is cheaper to grow, sells for less, and cheaper to process. That being said, it's less nutritionally sound than flour or wheat tortillas partially because corn is genetically modified very heavily, much more so than wheat, so you're getting a cost cut because of that.

This cooking method also works well for cubed beef or my favorite boneless skinless chicken breast. That's how i make filling for chicken enchiladas adding some chopped garlic, onion and carrot.
