Homemade Flour Tortillas

May 2, 2011
So, Cinco de Mayo is this Thursday and I’m sure many of you are planning a fiesta.  What is a fiesta without great Mexican food?  What is a fiesta without great homemade Mexican food?  The food is what makes a party.  And what is better than mouth-watering homemade Mexican food…
I am half Mexican so I have grown up with amazing Mexican food.  I know great Mexican food when I see it.   One of my favorites is flour tortillas.  I crave a good, soft flour tortilla.  A lot of times when I’m eating Mexican food, I just eat a huge tortilla with rice and beans – I literally can’t get enough!
With my love for flour tortillas I have always wanted to make some.  And with Cinco de Mayo coming up, I thought this would be the perfect time!  So, I searched the Internet for a recipe that I liked.
I’m sure many of you know that flour tortillas normally include lard and/or shortening.  And I’m sure many of you think that these ingredients are what make a good tortilla.  But I am here to tell you that this is not so.  This recipe I made included vegetable oil instead, and believe me, these tortillas were not sub-par.  They were oh-so-good!
They were soft and flavorful and wear a-ma-zing!!  While I was baking them up, my mouth was watering, and I just wanted to take bites of every one I made.  And when I took a bite into that tortilla it was like a revelation.  How could I have not made these before?  They were unbelievably simple!  And could not have tasted better!
To make your Cinco de Mayo fiesta a hit, or even just a normal dinner night, make these tortillas!  They are incredible and everyone will be completely impressed that they were homemade!

    YUMMMM! When you come home you should totally make those! We can use limes and real salsa though, instead of PACE PICANTE and lemons. haha 🙂
