No-oil bean tortilla

No-oil bean tortilla

I never get tired of making tortillas: one of my favorites. While I was reading Born to Run I was impressed by the Raramuri tribe from Mexico who have a long tradition of running long marathons each day and basically eat beans, rice and corn tortillas most days. Even though it seemed a bit extreme for me at that time, I totally get it now
