"Homemade Tortillas are so good! There is nothing like a homemade tortilla right off the stove. You can make them by hand or use your bread machine (both follow). Also you can use anywhere from 3 Tablespoons of shortening or lard to the 1/2 cup. I only used a 1/4 cup and they were wonderful. Flavored tortillas are made using dried pasta sauce mixes, such as Knorr brand. You can use any of the following: Red Bell Pepper Pesto, or Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto, or Garlic & Herb, or Parma Rosa Pasta Mix, Carbonara ,or Four Cheese. Cooking time is rising time."

"Two words. Just Divine!"
"My first try at making tortillas was a huge success. Thanks, Cheryl. I served these using Knorr Red Bell Pepper Pesto and look forward to trying the other flavors. I served these with Aztec Guacamole recipe #123915 for Dugan's poker party where five hungry men became five angry men after they inhaled them and had none left and I made a double batch. I only used 1 tsp of baking powder because I prefer a very thin tortilla and will use even less next time."
"These tortilla's were great fun to make! I wanted to make tortilla's with a tomato sort of flavour...I couldn't find any dried pasta mix so I used 1 tablespoon of tomato paste and 1 tablespoon of italian herbs, added with the flour etc. I used a scant 1 teaspoon of baking powder. I'm pretty hopeless with rolling stuff into a circle so I rolled the pieces of dough out as thin as possible and then used a side plate to cut out circles...lol. I'm so happy with these tortillas...they look fabulous, taste great and really take very little effort.I'm always on the lookout for recipes that don't use artificial colours or flavours..this recipe will be used a lot here."
"These were good tasting but I could not get them as thin as I would like. Maybe the baking powder? I rolled them even thinner than stated and had to peel them from the wax paper I rolled them on but they thickened in the pan. Nice browning and easy rolling. Will try again with less bp to see if I can get them thinner. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"Oh thanks much, I have made tortillas but didn't know how to get the flavorings, this will be terrific & I will also take the advice of Fairy Nuff & add a bit of tomato paste & herbs! Your basic recipe is very similar to one I use with the exception of using canola or olive oil for the fat. Works surprisingly well. Thanks again!"
