    My family cooks everything by touch, I've never been able to duplicate their tortilla recipe until now.

      Wow! These are absolutely amazing! The only thing I did differently was replace the shortening with lard (before you freak, read this: http://www.nytimes.com/2000/10/11/living/11LARD.html ). 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.
