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

MY REVIEW

"Excellent tortillas, I can't believe anyone would have trouble making these, or would submit a review while they were in the middle of making them and for that reason, giving them 3-stars before they even tasted them. I don't get that. Seriously. But anyway, the tortillas are great!"

"I have tried other tortilla recipe that were total failure. They were much more complicated than this one and didn't even work. I am so pleased with this recipe. Minimal ingredients, simple instructions. I love it and my family loves it!"

"Absolutely excellent! I generally read the outstanding and horrible ratings to get a better idea what to expect. I followed the recipe measurements as written but did use very warm water, made sure the skillet was HOT, and kneaded in the bowl, as recommend in other viewers comments. In fact when I rolled them out, I barely used any flour thus leaving virtually no mess. I thrive on cooking healthy and avoiding processed foods thus making this recipe is a keeper. Taste of Home should mark this as healthy as compared to store bought tortillas."
