Ceremonial Tortillas

Discover the beauty of Otomí tortillas, made in this Magical Town. Better known as ceremonial tortillas, they are served during the festival dedicated to the patron saint, or as an offering for important visits, since they demonstrate respect and gratitude.

To obtain the natural dye which they use to stamp the figures on the tortillas, they use muicle, a plant whose branches and leaves they boil with lime juice and baking soda. Today they use stamps made of pine or cedar wood to create images of the things that matter to the community: monstrance, flowers, saints. Nowadays you also see how they proudly stamp the logo that distinguishes Comonfort as a Magical Town.
