Chamorro Corn Titiyas or Titiyas Mai'es
...Guam corn tortilla is excellent with kelaguen.

TITIYAS MAI'ES or CORN TITIYAS

Titiyas mai'es is pronounced ti-tee-dzas ma-is. The method of rolling titiyas mai'es I used in the video is quick and easy. However, back in 1999, a friend in Germany, Angie, showed me how to shape the dough using a paper back.

If you look closely at the picture above, you will notice some have a smooth edge and some have a jagged edge. The smooth-edged titiyas is from using a paper back; the rough-edged titiyas is my method in the video.

I finally tried her method and love the smoothness of the edge, but it takes mre time and the titiyas end up slightly thicker. I'll do another short video simply showing Angie's method the next time I make corn titiyas.
