Making my own tortillas has been on my "need to try" list for a very long time. We eat a lot of tortillas. We use them for dinners of of soft tacos, and for a lot of quick lunches in the form of quesadillas. They are a staple item here.
One night my ten year old wanted to help make dinner. He wanted to make tacos. Of course he wanted to make them the night before grocery day, when we were fresh out of tortillas. Well, "necessity is the mother of invention," or in this case the mother of motivation to try something new.
They tasted wonderful! Ours were quite a bit thicker than the store bought tortillas we are used to. The homemade tortillas reminded us of Chalupas.
Making them was pretty simple, but the rolling out and baking was time consuming. For this particular meal it worked out ok because my son was able to do much of the tortilla work while I prepared the rest of the meal.
Will we make these again? Maybe.
Roughly the same amount of tortillas cost $1 at the store. Granted the homemade ones would cost pennies if I priced them out, and they taste better, but time is the big factor. I can see making tortillas again for a dinner, or making a huge batch at a time for the month. (Does anyone know if they freeze well?) But for a buck, the convenience of having them ready to go at lunch time is worth buying them to me.
Did you try anything new this month? How did it go? Please leave your link below!
