These taste just like the one's your grandmother use to make. They are so thin and perfect. Unless you tell I promise nobody will ever know they are flour tortilla's. If you want to make for a really big crowd, follow the same instructions just use a 6 qt pot and an additional small pack of 8.5 oz shells. Also you can omit the chicken if you want and use canned chicken broth or bouillon cubes.
