Hello, hello!  Sorry I didn't get a recipe up last weekend - I was off doing a college visit!  But I'm making up to you all today by posting two recipes.  And yes, they both include corn (hence the title - sorry, I couldn't resist!), corn in the form of a round, flat disk.  I don't know about you, but I've always loved corn tortillas.  I loved them even more when I had them homemade for the first time.  Really, there is nothing better than a warm, soft corn tortilla fresh of the griddle.  Please excuse me while I drift off into corn tortilla heaven...

Okay, back to reality.  Thankfully, coming back to reality gives me the opputunity to have these:
Sorry about the quality - my camera battery died and I had to resort to my cellphone.
Sometimes reality is better than dreams.

Sun-dried Tomato and Pepper Jack Cheese Enchiladas
If you don't want to make your own tortillas, feel free to use store-boughten.  But I recommend you take on the challenge.  I made mine garlic, but you can omit the garlic powder if you want them plain.
Serves 1

  • 1/3 cup masa harina 
  • 3/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Up to 1/3 cup warm water
  • 1 ounce pepper jack cheese, sliced thin
  • 2-3 tablespoons chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup + green chile sauce (I used Roberto's vegetarian green chile)
  1. Combine the masa harina and garlic powder in a small bowl.  Add the water and mix until a soft dough forms.  It should not be wet, sticky, or dry.  Form two balls and put them back in the bowl.  Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and let it sit for about 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Preheat a non-stick skillet on low heat.  Meanwhile, either press the tortillas between plastic wrap in a tortilla press or put the corn balls (one at a time) between plastic wrap and use a rolling pin to roll them to about an eighth of an inch thick.  Cook them on the preheated skillet for a minute to a minute and a half.
  3. Spread one to two tablespoons of the green chile on the bottom of a small, sprayed baking dish (I actually used a small pie pan).
  4. Fill each tortilla with half the cheese, about a tablespoon of chopped sun-dried tomatoes, and half a tablespoon of green chile.  Roll them up and put them seam down in the pan.
  5. Cover each tortilla with at least a tablespoon of green chile.  Make sure they are completely covered so that they don't dry out when baking.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the sauce is bubbling.

The next recipe is similar to my breakfast tacos.  But it was so good, that I decided that it deserved its own glory.
Again, I had to use my phone.
Breakfast Tacos - Take 2
I used homemade corn tortillas (but without garlic powder) for these.  Once again, you can use store-boughten, but you should try homemade.
Serves 1

  • 2 corn tortillas (homemade or store-boughten)
  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1/4 cup cooked black beans 
  • About 2 tablespoon salsa
  • A handful of cilantro leaves
  • Two to three tablespoons Greek yogurt (or you could use sour cream)
  1. But the rice and beans down the center of the tortillas and microwave for about a minute or until warm.
  2. Top with the remaining ingredients and enjoy!

Well there you have it!  I have another really yummy recipe for next week.  And guess what it includes???  Did you say corn?  What could possibly make you think that? ;)  Luckily, it will be in a slightly different form next week.  Any guesses??

MMMMM sounds so good. I have been thinking about your mom's home made tortillas! I am glad to get the recipe, maybe I can make some for myself since the recipe is for 1 and I am just ONE!

Hooray for the post title, I wouldn't have been able to resist it either!
Cheese and sundried tomatoes tortillas sound right up my street and I've got polenta so might have to give these a go :-)

Both recipes look delicious! I have a strange love for corn- I've been known to eat it out of a can with a spoon. Bookmarked! :)

Oh my goodness I love enchiladas!! That sounds awesome!! I've never made my own tortillas but I'd love to try. I bet they taste even better when they're fresh!!


You are such a smartie! I never would have thought to make my own corn tortillas. :)

I am so jealous of your camera on your phone. My phone would NEVER take such great pictures as those. :)
