I'll never buy tortillas again

Now that I know how easy it is to make ! Made these wholewheat tortillas last night - they may look a bit "burnt" (must still practice a bit) but they tasted great. Much nicer (and cheaper) than store bought ones!

I coulden't agree more. It took some doinf to get my flour Tortilla recipe right. Now that I have it, it is way easier to make them.

Also, as has been pointed out on this site, you need not make more than you need.

Thanks Pacanis - I'm quite proud of myself as I'm not exactly gifted when it comes to making anything involving dough. Might now even attempt to make that NYT bread I keep hearing about.

Very cool Tanya! I saw a recipe for fish tacoes in a magazine recently that said to make your own tortillas and then gave the directions. I haven't had the guts to try it but your success might just push me to it!

I like the way you can pick up a tortilla and circle around the table from filling to filling.
I was picturing my virtual self doing just that.

Looks good , Tanya! You can do the NYT bread... it is quite forgiving.

I don't think those look burnt at all - they look exactly the way I've always seen homemade tortillas look. What a good job - now you've given me hope that perhaps I can make them myself - lol!!

Question - did you use a tortilla press?
