Sonora Style Tortillas

Print Recipe

Sonora style tortillas are a type of tortilla that originates from the Sonora region in northern Mexico. These tortillas are made using a special type of flour called “harina de trigo” or wheat flour, which is different from the traditional corn masa used to make tortillas in other regions of Mexico.

Sonora style tortillas are typically larger and thinner than traditional corn tortillas and have a slightly sweet, nutty flavor. They are often used to make burritos, quesadillas, and other dishes where a larger tortilla is needed.

The process of making Sonora style tortillas involves mixing the wheat flour with water and a small amount of fat, such as lard or vegetable shortening, to create a dough. The dough is then divided into small balls and rolled out into thin rounds using a rolling pin or a tortilla press. The tortillas are cooked on a hot griddle or comal until they are lightly browned and cooked through.

Sonora style tortillas have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their versatility and unique flavor. They are a popular choice for Mexican cuisine in the United States, and can often be found in grocery stores and Mexican restaurants across the country.
