      1st attempt:
      let me not rate it just yet, becasue I think I might cook it too long.( I thought I would cook it until the color look like the store-bought tortilla. I certainly cook more than 1 mins each time. The product came out very brittle. i will try again

      I have been making my own flour tortillas for burritos for over 35 years. The recipe I use for them I will never change it was handed down to my by my mother but this tortilla recipe is great for eatting in place of bread. It is a thicker more bread like flour tortilla. Perfect for mexican soups..This recipe makes 10 tortillas..I made them again for fiesta mexican night they went well with the mexican casserole I made,spicy refried beans,chicken tortilla soup and mexican fiesta dip...UMMMMM
