My son has been making tortillas for several years. This is his 'tweaked' Joy of Cooking recipe. So much better than store bought tortillas!

Another winning bread recipe from Galley Wench! This was my first attempt at making homemade flour tortillas and it was a huge success!! The tortillas are so fresh and tasty with the perfect consistency. I followed the directions to a tee and they turned out great!
