Homemade Tortilla Experiment

We go through a lot of tortillas around here!  It might be my craving of tex mex lately or that my friend, Angie, mentioned she went to Rosa’s last week, but I had been reading about making your own tortillas and the more I read the easier it sounded.  I decided to give it a try last night! 

Here’s the link to the recipe I used.  They were easy, a little time consuming, but easy.  After you mix the dough, you pull off 18 (I got 19) balls and shape them into small discs.

The secret to making the dough easier to roll out is to let these small discs sit, wrapped in plastic, for about 1 hour.  After that I rolled each disc flat.  This is probably my least favorite part and you have to get over the fact that you won’t be able to make a perfect circle.  I think non-perfect circle tortillas give it more character, don’t you think?

Next, it’s time to heat them up!  I  had to set my burner pretty hot, about 5.5 on my gas cooktop.  They cooked up beautifully!

The tortillas tasted wonderful and stayed really hot all stacked together!

They were easy to make and since you can freeze tortillas, you could make up a big batch all at once and have them stored in your freezer.  I think I might have just cut tortillas from our grocery list!
