I double this batch and make it about every 2 weeks. I use the water part and it turns out great! I have tried with milk but since water is more readily available I go with that. I also do half and half of white flour and whole wheat (I tried doing all whole wheat and it was not to my liking) I used to buy tortillas all the time and now I make them myself!

Very good. May I suggest using Lard (Manteca in Spanish) which is the traditional way? We now know that Crisco and vegetable oils are not nearlyas healthy as yes, believe it or not, pig fat!

Great recipe. I made the tortillas with canola oil instead of shortening, used water, and did 1/2 c. of whole wheat flour, 1 1/2 c. all purpose. In the future I will likely make them only with A.P. flour when using them for tacos/fajitas but for use as wraps I think the combination of wheat and A.P. flour works well. This recipe was very easy and makes delicious tortillas. I will definitely continue to use this recipe instead of purchasing tortillas at the store.

used 1/2 C wheat flour to 1.5 C white flour. Great combo. Will make again

I followed this to the letter (using vegetable oil) and my taco-sized tortillas turned out perfectly fluffy and soft. This is my first time making tortillas that didn't rip when stuffed full of ingredients. This will definitely be my go-to flour tortilla recipe going forward!

These were great!! I made them using water, ( I will try milk next time to see the difference). I rolled them paper thin and cooked them on a non stick skillet. They puffed up to the thickness of store bought ones. But tasted a 100 times better. They made the best soft taco's I have ever had!!!
thanks for the recipe

Thank you for a way to do low carb tortillas that still taste like tortillas! I used soy flour and whole milk - and didn't pay any attention to the directions because I fried them. They were SO GOOD! Next time I'll cook them the right way and see if they will roll lol. But this is a wonderful recipe. I look forward to experimenting with it a lot.
