In his book, Stupak offers recipes "new wave", as he puts it : "to declare that the only good Mexican cuisine is 'authentic' also assumes that the cuisine has ceased evolving"

The dough or "masa"
2. Combine the

Make the flour tortilla
7. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough into a 5.9" (or 5 29/32" or 15 cm) circle and 0.07" (or 5/64" or 0.2 cm) thick. If the tortilla is too sticky, you may want to mix again with a tablespoon of flour, but I never needed to do it so you should be fine.
Cooking the Tortillas
Storing the cooked tortillas
14. Stupak mentioned that it's best if you use the tortillas right away. After cooking them, garnish them and serve your tacos, they will taste better when they are freshly cooked.
