The Best Store-Bought Tortilla I Ever Had

Ok guys, the other day I went to Mecca AKA Whole Foods and spotted a beautiful package of tortillas I’d never seen before. They were paper thin and carried ubiquitous char spots. They appeared to be blistered and shiny, even in the package. I was shocked by the $7 price tag, considering how cheap tortillas normally are, but I was intrigued by the description: "We produce tortillas the same way it is done throughout the towns, villages and cities of Northern Mexico."

Cinco de Mayo Dip: My Favorite Hot-Oil Guacamole, Extra-Chunky

For a while I contemplated sharing a recipe for anything other than guacamole because I get it...how many times can we sing praise for mashed avocado with cilantro and lime? I hear you. But wait... what if you don't have a go-to recipe for your favorite guac? What if you're always eyeballing this and that, sometimes achieving avocado nirvana, other times blinking doubly as you taste your acidic concoction? It has taken me a long time but I have found my favorite recipe, and I rarely stray from it.
