    These are very good and are like the store bought kind but better! They are Delicious warm from the pan! You can use these just like any store bought kind, to make fajitas, burritos, etc.

      This recipe made it into our Book #242923! 10/02/09 - So fresh and so good! I quartered the recipe using 1 cup of flour and got 3 very pretty tortillas. The directions couldn't have been easier! Rather than oiling the pan, I sprayed the tortillas with bottled olive oil spray, then placed them oil side down into the pan. when I flipped them, I removed the pan from the heat and gave another spray. This recipe makes me want to go out and buy a tortilla press! These have the perfect amount of salty/sweet that truly makes a great tortilla. Thanks so much for sharing our new go-to recipe for fresh tortillas. :)

      This recipe made the best flour tortillas Ive ever eaten indeed! They were so soft and yet sturdy enough to hold fillings and the taste was lovely, too! YUM! Ill surely make this often again.
      My only problem was that I needed to add tons more of flour to get this dough to work out. At first all I had was a sticky, gloppy mess, but after incorporating about I dont know maybe 1 or 1 1/2 cups more flour (for half the recipe) it worked out really well and was easy to roll out. Due to this I ended up with more tortillas which wasnt too bad now. ;)
      THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us, chloethecook.

      These were delicious even on their own. They are also sturdy and held up well to a heavy fajitas filling. they would be a great substitute in a case where pita bread is called for. Great recipe, and fun to make!
