"This recipe is an adaptation of Tortillas de Harina. You can substitute any flour for some or all of the whole wheat. I have used half spelt or oatmeal; I even stirred in some nutritional seaweed flakes and flax seed. It takes a little practice to roll out even tortillas, but having funny hand-shaped ones are much more fun :) You may want to make a double or triple batch to save for later."

"I am rating these 5 stars for taste - they were great. The dough was a little tricky to work with but once I got the hang of it, it went much more smoothly. Thanks for sharing!"
"Well I'm hesitant to leave a review or divvy up stars on these, only because of what I did wrong. I think the recipe is a very good one. The flavor was good, but now to my issues..... I think I rolled them way too thick since I only got 4 tortillas, then I had the pan wayyyy too hot and scorched them. I think I wasn't fast enough in flipping either. But all in all I will definately try these again, 2nd time the charm? Made for PAC Spring 09."
"I have never made tortillas before, but this sounded like an uncomplicated, highly rated, fairly healthy recipe. I had such high hopes that I doubled it. Silly me. It was a disaster. Didn't look, taste, smell or roll like tortillas should. They stuck to the counter and the rolling pin, they fell apart, they didn't blister or bubble, and they taste like cardboard. Either I'm the world's worst tortilla maker or this is the world's worst recipe ... give it a shot if you dare, but don't say I didn't warn you."
"I was looking for a homemade tortilla that was low in sodium to use in making quesadilas. I had never made tortillas before, so I tried 2 recipes this morning. Needless to say one did not turn out well. This one certainly did. I made it exactly how it was directed even using my hands to mix it. It is a very pliable dough yet firm enough to withstand the rolling pin. I rolled out between two pieces of plastic wrap since that's what I saw in other recipes. Only got 6 tortillas so will double the recipe next time. Very tasty."
"These were so easy to make and so delicious! I have never made tortillas before, and mine came out great. My husband and I just ate the whole batch:) Thanks so much for this recipe, I will be using it often."
