blue corn tortillas with smoky beef

A couple months back we bought our kitchen an exciting little present: a tortilla press. It’s not the fanciest on the market, but it does the trick of squeezing springy balls of blue corn masa into thin discs of deliciousness. When those warm blue-grey tortillas are topped with smoky pulled beef, grilled bell pepper and chiles, fresh tomatillo sauce and cilantro (oh, and a fried egg, naturally), the present has officially earned its permanent spot on the kitchen shelf.
