This week in our study of the Western States is Arizona. The capital of Arizona is Phoenix. Did you know that Arizona's cuisine is closer to the Mexican formula than Texas? The Tex-Mex food is closely linked to that of Mexico. The Mexican region we're speaking of is the state of Sonora which is just across the boarder. Since we're talking Tex-Mex food here's a great recipe to get you started...
2 cups blue cornmeal
1 1/4 cups water
1. Mix cornmeal and water until dough is pliable and moist (but not sticky or wet).
2. Shape dough into twelve balls.
3. Flatten balls by patting out with hands or foiling between to sheets of greased wax paper.
4 Cook on lightly greased griddle over medium heat about four minutes on each side, or until brown."
Makes 12 Tortillas
If you are from Arizona feel free to share a recipe with us to try. I'll be back next week to tell you what's next in our study of the Western States. Thank you again for stopping by to learn along with us.
