      Wow! These are absolutely amazing! The only thing I did differently was replace the shortening with lard (before you freak, read this: ). I have also used this as the basis for a large number of "alternate flavor" tortillas such as Tomato Basil, Spinach, Roast Garlic etc. Thanx for the recipe!

      These are great -- much more flavourful than storebought. We made them a couple weeks back for quesadillas, and made them again this morning for breakfast burritos! Thanks for a simple recipe that will surely be made often at our house.
