OMG!!!! I think that I have bought my last package of premade tortillas ever!!! My husband loved these and so did the kids. Remember to roll them until you think that they are too thin, then they are ready to grill. I kneaded mine for about 8 minutes for anyone wanting an approximate time on kneading. I used the baking sticks by crisco and it turned out beautifully. Thanks so much for this, I am looking forward to making the next batch and buying a tortilla press to make rolling them so much easier!!!
Couldn't find tortillas in the store today and DH wanted tacos so was so glad to see these pop up. I made sure to follow the directions exactly - even to setting the timer for kneading. The flavor was right on and tasted great - my only issue was the spring that was in the dough and that's probably my biggner skills. I rolled them out thin, but when I'd pick them up to put in the pan they'd shrink back and they ended up to thick, more like a flat bread. My shapes also left a lot to be desired, but the taste was perfect and hey - Ill get even better next time I'm sure.
I read through all the reviews and made sure to knead the dough for at least 8 mins...my first few didn't come out very well because I was waiting for them to bubble and inflate...which never happen...so they were too hard...I did cook the rest of them on my griddle at a temp of 400 degrees just for about 45 seconds per side...they turned out nice and flexible...not sure I really care to go thru all the trouble...when you can find some store bought ones that are really good...but if I'm in a pinch and need tortilla's this will be my go to recipe...thanks for posting it...made for "Help a Naked Recipe" tag game for recipes without a photo...:)
Keeper, keeper!!! Used as is except added 1/2 cup corn meal. Awesome! Thank you!!
The first batch didn't turn out so well because I didn't knead the dough long enough. It seemed smooth so I moved on... Big mistake. For elasticity these need to be kneaded well. (it's all about the gluten...I suppose.) Or else you'll get that "raw flour" flavor some people complain about with homemade tortillas. Good recipe though.
The best tortillas!
The tortillas taste delicious, but how do you make them come out round? Mine always are oddly shaped. Lol
Tastes just like my grandma's!
These are wonderful! My mother has been making tortillas for over 40 years and I can never get a recipe from her because she just does it all by hand and no measurements. Needless to say mine have never turned out even close to hers until I found this recipe! They're delicious and I'm sure to always have these available.
