    Firerose36's Note:

    This is a simple very tasty recipe created by my husband's creativity one day. Homemade by scratch and lots better then any store bought manufactured tortilla, flexible and easy to apply to any use, makes very good soft corn taco shells.

      a. color approximate based on preference.
    8. 8
      Tip 1: Tortilla should not be crispy like a chip, but flexible & soft, turn heat down until you reach a desired consistency. Also, you can reheat cooled tortillas in microwave to regain the flexibility if it becomes stiff.
    9. 9
      Tip 2: If using a large skillet on a range top stove, use Med to Med-High heat depending on range top, 1-2 min on each side until tortilla is soft, flexible, and a pale yellow color.

      This is a great recipe! I was looking high and low for a tortilla recipe that used cornmeal (instead of masa flour), but one that did not use eggs, which made it more crepe-like. This was easy to make and turned out a tortilla that tasted like a tortilla should. Thank you for sharing this!
