They are best eaten within 24 hours after being made since they tend not last long once cooled down completely.
- Corn Tortilla – Corn tortillas have been around since pre-Columbian times when corn was first introduced into Mexico by Native Americans thousands of years ago; these days these staples feature heavily in traditional Mexican cuisine where they are commonly eaten alongside beans and rice dishes such as frijoles refritos (refried beans). This recipe makes 8 small corn tortillas so feel free top double up on quantities if making larger quantities is required e.g., if serving more than 4 people at one sitting!
