AUSTIN, TEXAS — Blue Corn Tortillas made with real blue corn masa and filtered water.

An Austin Company at the downtown market sells them out of their Saturday booth. (reading Austin Urban Gardens blog, I had to try them.)

So on Saturday’s trip to the downtown SFC market, I spoke with the maker Gardener’s Feast…she assured me they were made simply with real blue corn masa and filtered water. Thats it. No lard, no other weird alien substance, just straight up corn masa.

Tortillas were grilled to wrap up the charred chicken, tomatillos.

So I bought a pack of eight tortillas for $3, licking my lips in anticipation of what wonderous salsa to drench them with. And we did. And we also applied heat, with a very hot grill…and the blue beauties puffed like a blow fish ….I imagined sopapillas with honey drizzle and any ooey gooey substance slathered right into the middle.

For dinner tonight I used them to hold charred tomatillos, grilled chicken and adobo salsa. (Oh lord, it was yummy.) For dinner Saturday I cut them in triangles and made corn chips for a Buddha-like bowl. (the bowl featured momotaro tomatoes…which I found out were Japanese and sweet.)

Thanks again to Austin Urban Garden for turning me on to these Tillas!
