Homemade Tortillas

How To Make Flour TortillasI can’t even describe the difference between homemade and store-bought tortillas. Can we compare a Rolex to a Timex?

A BMW to a skateboard?

Anthony Weiner to a cocktail frank?

I don’t think so.

Here’s my recipe for the best homemade tortillas you’ve ever had.
They are so worth the effort. Try them this weekend!

    I like tortillas better than slice bread, so here lately I’ve been eating more tortillas than bread. I just made a tuna wrap the other day. I bet one of those would taste good wrapped with tuna, lettuce, tomato and onion…Yum!…

    Jenny, this recipe seems like the most easiest of all your recipes. Not really much to it and I bet they are better than store bought like you said 😉

    Why not fill it in with honey bbq chicken strips, lettuce, tomato, sweet vidalia onion and shredded cheddar!! Just a thought JJ!
    I know I’m not buying store bought tortillas anymore!!


  3. Yummmmmmmm…..I have always wanted to ask you about a cooking thing and keep forgetting to blog it. I am allergic tomost fresh fruit and veggies. I can not eat strawberries at all….but I can eat all other fruit an veggies cooked. Any adviceon how to cook mushy veggies and fruit and have it taste good? I am allergic to the berch pollin and when cooked it is cooked out.

      My favorite way with vegetables is to roast them. It makes them soft & brings out the flavors & caramelizes them beautifully. And it’s so easy. (recipe is in my book) Just put chopped & cut up veggies on a baking sheet, toss with olive oil, salt & pepper, and roast in a 425 oven for about 1/2 hour. You can even try 400 or 450. Shake the pan a couple of times or turn the veggies with a spatula. I do this with potatoes, sweet potatoes, red peppers, green beans, brussel sprouts, carrots, squash, onions, or anything I have around, trying for a mix of colors. Cut harder vegetables in smaller pieces and soft ones bigger. I hope you like it.

      Also, you can make “mashed potatoes” out of combos of other root vegetables like sweet potatoes, turnips, carrots, parsnip, rutabaga, I even mix potatoes with cauliflower too (also in my book).

    Homemade (dare I say?), trumps store-bought. I’ll have to pass your recipe on to my Mother. She makes the BEST chicken fajitas, around. I’ve tried to make them her way but to no avail. It must be what ever she adds to them when I’m not looking that, makes them far better than when I try to make them. Maybe, your tortillas could kick them up a notch? Maybe, maybe! 😀

    Thanks for the tortilla recipe, AND for the “weiner” joke. My grandson (6 yrs old) make a weiner joke the other day, but I won’t share that one on here. 😉

    Thanks again!
