    Tortilla suggestions

    I live in New England and my teens are CRAZY about the local chipotle fast food place. I can make all the fillings pretty closely - but what i can't get right is the tortilla. I've tried every grocery store brand and they are just "blah".

    Any suggestions for a good tortilla - I'd even order online if i could get a decent restaurant quality one.

    I live in the Chicago area and I buy El Milagro tortillas - I like them best of the ones I have tried. They are available at several markets, including my local Mexican market. If I remember, I'll check the names of other brands they carry

    Welcome Patti!

    Not sure what is offered in your area. Here in Texas we can even purchase partially cooked tortillas and finish the cooking in our own kitchen- perfection!

    Tortillas are pretty easy to make! Just takes a little practice getting them the right thickness which varies with each individual.

    Here are some recipes you might try:

    Also, google or even old school flip through a phone book and see if there may be any Latin Grocers in your area. They would have the best and freshest tortillas.

    Great ideas - all I can find are mass marketed ones which seem thick and dry - I heat them, steam them, sear them with a bit of oil ... still not good qulaity.

    No they are not. Let us know if you try a recipe here and how it comes out.

    I have not yet found where the fresh tortillas are, although I have to believe we have them somewhere in the burbs - but the ones I mentioned have generally been quite good.

    Trader Joes had some good ones that I tried this weekend. I have a week off a XMAS and might try to make my own.

    I too live in New England and have a tough time finding good tortillas. I have been making my own flour tortillas for years using this recipe Pipin' Hot Bakery Whole Wheat Tortillas
    At first it was a little tricky but after a while it became second nature to whip up a batch in no time.
    As for Corn tortillas, I did try making those once and I pretty much failed. It is a totally different animal when it comes to rolling them out so due to the fact I didn't have a tortilla press I ended up with one heck of a mess. I am sure if i kept at it like I did with the flour version I would have been able to succeed but I decided to wait until I purchase a press before trying them again.

    Good morning. Yes, I understand that practice is what is necessary in order to make good tortillas. I have made flour once or twice in my life but have never given the corn a try. I am fortunate enough to be able to purchase good corn tortillas locally. That is something to plan doing sometime.

    A subtle hint... Your Teens are crazy about them. So, Maybe they could help out in the process? Just a thought.
