Tortillas Azules


—  Story Pending | Anécdota Pendiente  —


There are a number of foods key to the nutrition of most countries along the Mesoamerican line, but the king of them since the time of the ancient Mayas has always been corn. In its many varieties, purple corn – or Blue corn – stands out for its deep purple color, which gives foods and beverage a unique richness known to few!  Tortillas in general are a corn preparation with Pre-columbian origins, used as a side dish – like bread – or as an actual part of the meal, like with tacos or enchiladas. It’s part of the daily diet since long, long ago, especially in the remote areas of the Mesoamerican region, and this famous blue variety is a unique variety cherished by many that can now be found commercially in the form of blue masa. Nothing like the fresh kind, though!
