The Empellón Cocina and Taqueria chef shared his recipe with First We Feast, revealing that when he started out, he drove his staff to the ground attempting to grill perfect corn tortillas. Stupak thought flour tortillas were beneath him, but a food-writer friend (whom he will not name) convinced him otherwise. It was actually his pastry-chef wife, Lauren, who perfected the recipe, which the kitchen could easily produce in mass amounts. The four-ingredient recipe’s pretty straightforward: Just make sure you eat the tortillas “immediately with butter and sea salt.” Instructions we can follow. [First We Feast]
