MOORHEAD — Amy Espinoza stands beside a tortilla machine, rolling balls of dough between her palms and feeding them into the gas-powered device that flattens, cooks and spits out tortillas on a conveyor belt.
As they exit, some are puffed up with air like small pillows.
“There’s a saying,” she says, “that if you get them to puff up, then your mother-in-law loves you.”
Espinoza was making flour tortillas at La Unica Mexican Market, a grocery at 2615 12th Ave. S. in an out-of-the-way Moorhead industrial park. It is a small corner of Mexico in the Great White North.
