Reviews for Homemade Tortillas

"I followed the recipe exactly as stated and my tortillas turned out perfectly! The only thing I had to do was add a little extra water because the dough was a little dry. My previous attempt at homemade tortillas was awful, so I am very excited to have found this recipe. I am interested in trying coconut oil as another reviewer did. Will try it next time, which will be very soon, as I can't wait to eat these tortillas again!"
"Dilli is right, my mom use to make tortilla every morning and used a pinch of baking powder and lard instead of oil along with all the other ingredients. That is how real tortillas are made."
"Not enough oil (I don't like olive oil taste) needs 1 tsp of salt and you must add at least 1/2 tsp of baking powder. Water should be hot (not boiling) so the dough is pliable. I have to improvise with this recipe before I give it more than one star."
"I LOVE THIS RECIPE. I'm terrible at rolling them out but they taste amazing thick too:)"
"very good, but needs a little more salt. next time I will probably double the salt."
