    ksparker's Note:

    Homemade tortillas may take more time than buying a bag at the store, but they are so much worth the time. I like to substitute 1/2 whole wheat flour. A tortilla press can be helpful, but not necessary.

      For a low-cal, low fat tortilla, these are terrific. Very easy to make - yes, they're not quite as flavorful as tortillas made with lard, but that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make. The texture was lovely, and I always have these ingredients on hand. My husband said he liked them better than store bought.

      We love em, will never buy premade again! I don't think 3/4 cup is enough, water, though.
