  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Spiceology Korean BBQ Blend
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon fish sauce

Activated Charcoal Tortillas


  • 2 cups Masa Harina
  • 2 tablespoons lard

  • 2 tablespoons Activated Charcoal
  • 1 ½ cups warm water


  1. Combine Masa Harina, lard, salt, and activated charcoal in a large bowl and mix well.

  3. Take a gallon size ziploc bag and cut each side so the bag unfolds.
  4. Place about 3 tablespoons of dough in a ball in the middle of the bottom part of the bag.
  5. Fold the top over and press into a tortilla with a glass pyrex pan.
  6. Place tortilla on hot griddle and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side. Remove and wrap in dry towel.  
  7. When ready to make tacos, reheat tortillas with a little oil on the griddle.
