"My girls love tortillas, my younger has food intolerance so we stay away from added/artificial preservatives all together. I'm always buying tortillas so I decided to try homemade. I made to this yesterday with coconut oil and it was a success! My family loved it so I'm making double batch today. I'm going to use warm water and let rest longer before rolling for softer tortillas. Love it!"
"Using warm water and warm butter is the trick! Makes perfect tortillas."
"I made this recipe twice and I love it !!!"
"I made it just now and it was totally amazing"
"I just made this recipe. It was my first attempt at tortillas and they're hard to shape without prior practice, but for a four (very basic) ingredient tortilla, I love them! So simple and yummy!"
"These were great! I used vegetable oil instead and I threw the ingredients into a bread machine. They were perfect."
"I made these yesterday and they are totally amazing. I did try a different recipe before and while the end result tastedgood the dough was so sticky.I found this dough perfect. I put the ingredients in my bread machine on a dough setting for 5 minutes and it was perfect. They roll out really well and taste amazing. They are the best tasting i have made and i have only been making tortillas for a month! They are so easy to make and cook that even I can make them and have everyone coming back for more. This coming from a person who can burn toast. I did use hot water though. I refrigerated left over dough and used it today and it was still perfect"
"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!?"
