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!
