Tortilla Factory

We found a tortilla factory in Orange Walk, Belize. We wanted to get some tortillas and nacho chips so we went inside. They gave us a corn tortilla fresh out oven. It was the best tortilla I ever had because it was made right there before our eyes. The people there were very busy getting stacks of tortillas and serving many customers. We enjoyed watching this so much that we decided to make a little movie and hope you enjoy it too. The first step is batter making where they grind the dry corn into a pulp. The second step is run the batter through a machine that flattens it and stamps out a circle. Next the tortillas go through a toasting machine which is very quick. Out the other side they come and presto, you have a stack of fresh tortillas. These corn tortillas here are much much better than the ones you get at the store back in home.
