Homemade Flour Tortillas ~ Yum!


I have always used store-bought flour tortillas.
I had no idea that they were so easy to make!

S.O. E.A.S.Y.

We were having refried beans for dinner and I decided to serve them with
Jennifer Jo's recipe for homemade tortillas.
I ventured into the unknown and made them and they were a hit!
I made a double batch and had NO leftovers ~
not actually surprising around here!
Next time you go Mexican, try these...you won't be disappointed.
I followed the recipe to a "T" and they worked ~
do I sound surprised?  I was.

One thing to note ~ I do not have a comal or a cast iron skillet...
I used the electric frying pan I own (which is stainless with no non-stick coating)
and they still worked.  I just greased the pan for each tortilla with coconut oil.

They were F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S.!

Next time I will have to multiply the recipe by four to have leftovers. :)

Those look pretty simple to make. I have never made them before either. I think that I am going to give them a try - I am sure they are much healthier than the store bought ones!

Blessings!

Hi Camille~ Oh yes homemade flour tortillas are the best!! And you're right soooo easy! Well once you learn how anyway (it took me a long time to learn)

I have our recipe on our blog. We make a huge batch and gobble them all up. So thick and warm!!

And we pressure cook our beans and those are a perfect match with our tortillas.

Thanks for sharing~

I've never thought about making my own, but after reading your post and checking out the recipe, it sounds pretty easy, and probably alot more tasty than the ones you buy in the store.
