DC to the rescue once again!!!!!!!!!! Thanks so much for all of your suggestions!!!!! I really didn't think that I would even get a response to my question as it's so easy to just go and buy tortillas in a lot of places these days but I can't tell you enough how appreciative I am. Alton Brown's recipe wouldn't work here as I've never even seen fresh corn on the cob even, much less dried corn kernels. You can buy imported popcorn as long as you are willing to give up your first born child however. This will be a recipe that I will have to try in the states, however, as my family prefers corn tortillas anyway--so thanks for the site, GotGarlic! I also have a recipe that uses oil for tortillas and that one is very good, and I'm sure that yours is better than mine, Skittetlicker, but my recipe didn't have the texture that this new recipe using the shortening did. Maybe if you have the time and don't worry if you don't, you could post it to me. And Jennyema I will definitely give yours a try. I searched the internet and didn't have much luck for any that used butter . So thanks again. I'm serving chicken and beef fajitas this Saturday and would like to invite a few more people but I've run out of shortening. So you guys are wonderful to respond so quickly. Mucho gracias!!!!!
