I usually have to double this recipe because we go through them quickly. Tender, chewy and simple, you'll never use store-bought tortillas again. —Kristin Van Dyken, West Richland, Washington

"Yum!"

MY REVIEW

"Worth it! So yummy and easy to make. I also will never buy tortillas again. nothing like store bought.... Better! After cooking them, I will immediately put them on a plate and put a pan lid over it so it keeps the moisture in and keeps them soft. I cook mine on medium heat, as soon as they start to bubble, flip and wait about 30 secondS then take it off the pan. I like to not cook them all the way so that they stay soft and I can store them and use later.

Keep in mind, for all of the reviews that say they are gooey and doughy or way too hard, if the dough is too gooey, add more flour, if too dry, add just a lil more water. Simple as that. Do not over cook! And do not leave out or they will go hard! Cover immediately!"

"My family really likes tortillas. I was so excited when I tried this recipe and it turned out great. These are nothing like store bought tortillas, they are not as pliable but are much tastier. I doubled the recipe when I made them. While it's not necessary, I would recommend using a tortilla press. I borrowed my mother's and it was so much easier than rolling them out. I think I will substitute corn meal for the half the flour next time I make them and see how they tun out."
