I’m just going to call it like it is. My husband is spoiled. Ever since I started making these, he doesn’t want to go back to the premade ones at all. Unfortunately, he’s gonna have to live with the premade ones sometimes because I don’t always have the time to make these. And honestly, I do have to agree with him. Once you’ve made tortillas yourself and tasted them fresh, you really start to see the big difference. Fresh tortillas have such a soft and fluffy texture and they just add so much flavor to your tacos or burritos. And they are surprisingly easy to make. You don’t need a tortilla maker either. The key really is to roll them out super thin. Thinner than you would think they would need to be because they puff up nicely as they cook. The rolling out part is probably the longest part of this recipe. But do yourself a favor, try these. You will not be disappointed! This would make a great addition to any Cinco De Mayo party. Have a taco and burrito bar and let guests serve themselves. And you can have more fun!
