Reviews for Homemade Tortillas
"Love! Just made these last night and I was very happy with how easy they were and how great they tasted. I was skeptical after reading some reviews, but after looking through other recipes I decided to go with these because all ingredients were on hand and it seemed like a low-risk trial. So happy! I did use warm water per reviewers advice - and found out you really only have to cook for about 10 - 15 seconds a side (I used a hot cast iron skillet wiped with oil) - otherwise just followed the instructions. My boyfriend kept referring to them as "clean food" - lol! I guess because they didn't come out of a package!?"
"I tried this recipe but alas, fail. You need lard. The olive oil gives a terrible texture and taste. We've been making tortillas for years. Sometimes too they are like crackers. They also taste terrible unless you eat them fresh. not good."
"Great Recipe, I just have one little trick. I use warm water when I mix the Ingredients together. In my opinion it makes them perfect. And for those who say the Recipe isnt good. It just takes prectice, Tortillas are a little difficult at first. You have to make it a few times before they start turning out amazing."
"Really good crackers!"
"So easy and delicious!"
"This works perfect with coconut oil in place of olive oil, and has a higher smoking point. BTW, use a cast iron pan, med low heat and don't oil the pan. Works perfect and your tortillas are better for you too."
"Eee! They turned out great! I took the advice of another reviewer and added 1/2 tsp of baking soda and 1/8th tsp of vinegar. They rolled out great, cooked great, and tasted very authentic to me (for those of you who grew up around Tex-Mex or the like, stay away or else you will be disappointed). For those of us trying to get away from the overly processed stuff at the store, this recipe is a great find!"
"I'm from San Antonio I know what tortillas are, real tortillas, i figured I'd try this recipe but with all due respect it was a disaster.... first flower was not fixed right, use tortilla flower mix or find a better way to make the mix itself"
"This was my first attempt in making tortillas and the family loved it. I did two things differently. The first was to substitute one cup of flour with whole wheat flour and second, I cooked them directly on top of my gas burner to get a little char and flavour similar to a good restaurant. Outcome was a happy family!"
"I am 13 and just made these fantastic tortillas! They were very soft and chewy. These are 100 times better than normal tortillas. Thanks for this simple yummy snack."
