Have you ever eaten a freshly cooked flour tortilla? If so, you know that store bought tortillas are dry and can be quite flavorless at times. They just don’t hold a candle to fresh. Have you ever considered making them at home yourself? It’s not as hard as you think. And you don’t have to claim any cultural heritage to make great flour tortillas right in your own kitchen!
These Tortillas are made with flour, shortening, water and a pinch of salt. The dough is rolled by hand into small balls that are refrigerated until firm. They will keep for 5 days in the fridge. When you’re ready to serve fresh tortillas with dinner, simply pull out a few dough balls, roll them out on a clean surface, and cook them until they bubble and brown a bit in a hot oiled nonstick pan. That’s it! They are great for quesadillas or try them with Posole!
