Talos con Chistorra Recipe (Corn Tortillas with Sausage)
Talos are grilled corn tortillas that are popular in Northern Spain. Stuff them with sausage or cheese for a delicious snack!
- 3 cups of yellow corn flour not cornmeal and not corn starch *I've found this in health food shops in Madrid*
- 1 cup + 1 Tablespoon of hot water as hot as you can handle
- Pinch of salt
- Chistorra or other sausage/fillings
Pour the corn flour into a large bowl and slowly add the hot water while mixing the dough together with your hands.
Add hot water (you may need more or less than indicated above) until you get a nice elastic dough with the consistency of Playdough.
Let the dough rest in the bowl for about an hour, covered with a damp cloth
Knead the dough for at least 5 minutes before making the talos
Sprinkle flour on a wooden work surface (either a butcher's block or cutting board)
Make a small ball of dough and put it in the center of your work surface
Slap the dough, adding more flour when necessary, until you have a thin tortilla (talo)
Slide the talo onto a hot frying pan or electric grill and cook each side until it starts to brown and bubble
Enjoy with your favorite filling (we recommend crispy fried chistorra sausage).
