    Cookgirl's Note:

    Important note! You will need 1 tablespoon of *Belizean recado rojo to prepare this recipe. My fine Belizean friend Ms. Jardìn taught me how to make these tortillas! Furthermore, she is my one and only *homemade* recado rojo supplier (direct from Belize!) and I must remain in her favor...*Belizean recado rojo contains achiote as its main ingredient but includes other spices (but not limited to) such as allspice, oregano, cumin, clove, etc.; recipes vary widely from region to region home to home in the country of Belize. This one will work: Recado Rojo ( <<<---not tested and I would strongly suggest you use water instead of vinegar to make the paste.) A very new cuisine I only recently was introduced to December 2012.

    My Private Note



    Belizea ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 cups dry masa harina (corn tortilla mix)
    • water
    • oil, for frying (oil suitable for high heat)


    1. 1
      *Please read recipe introduction before proceeding!*.
    2. 2
      Place the dry masa harina mix in a large mixing bowl.
    3. 3
      In a small bowl add about 1 tablespoon of recado rojo (you can always add more later). Whisk in some water about 1/2 cup to make a paste.
    4. 4
      Add this mixture to the bowl of dry masa harina mix. Now stir in enough water to make a pliable dough (or however much water the package of masa harina states on the back of the bag minus 1/2 cup water).
    5. 5
      Form into tortillas.
    6. 6
      Heat up the oil in a deep fryer, wok or heavy skillet (cast iron being my preference) to fry the tortillas until bright orange-red and crispy. Place the tortillas on a paper towel to drain the excess oil.
    7. 7
      Try the tortillas with this!: Belizean Beans-Basic (Vegan).
    8. 8
      Yield is estimated.
