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

"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."

MY REVIEW

"Made these a couple of times, with varying results. My personal tips are: Using hot water at the start helps. I did not find any need to add any other ingredients to what is listed. If you don't have a large work surface, just knead the dough in the mixing bowl and it saves on making any mess at all.

Don't underestimate the 'keep warm' instruction in the recipe. They will dry out quickly and go hard, so cover them in some foil, and the trapped steam will make them soft and perfect for wraps. If you cook them on a heat that isn't high enough, they will dry out while cooking and become hard, so cook them hot and fast."
