    We fill them with tons of different things:


    • grilled chicken strips w/ Green Peppers/Onions
    • refried beans, ground beef, green peppers/onions
    • refried beans, cheese, beef or ground turkey, caramelized onions
    • Steak strips, cheese
    • salsa, chicken, cheese
    • crab rangoon filling
    • enchilada fillings
    • scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese
    • scrambled eggs, sausage, cheese


    Sometimes we freeze them empty between sheets of wax paper and fill them as we need them for lunches:


    • Chicken salad
    • tuna salad
    • hummus
    • tuna & grape salad
    • ham & cheese
    • roast beef

    I made these today using half white and half whole wheat flour and the sun dried tomato variation. My first time making flour tortillas and is was so easy. The results look "store bought" at a tenth of the price. I'm filling mine with leftover steak, blue cheese crumbles, lettuce, tomato, and red onion. This with grapes on the side would be at least $8.00 at a restaurant. My cost is less than $1.00. Now I'm thinking of other variations: spinach, black olive, and roasted pepper come to mind. I know I'll have to decrease the water, but that's an easy fix.

    The sun-dried tomato tortilla made with half all-purpose flour and half white-whole wheat flour is amazing. I didn't need to roll it out, just kept patting it out. Fresh tasting and somehow tastes" rich". Can't wait to make more variations!

    You can make Mexican grilled cheese (quesadilla) adding any kind of cheese, meat or vegetable combo. i like the veggies cooked first.
    Quick take along breakfast spread with peanut butter, or nutella. An easy sweet tooth, put in oil and fry a little sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. you can fry them crispy and sprinkle with any seasoning desired to make a sort of homemade dorito, dip in salsa or guacamole.
    fresh tortillas seem to dry out quickly, a quick zap in the micro with a damp paper towel bring them back to life.

    Liss,
    I don't know what I did wrong but my dough isn't stiff enough to knead or roll. It has the consistency of very thick pancake batter. Help!!

    Approx. 1 cup of water to 3 cups of flour. You might want to cut this receipe in half if this is your first time making them. And I use lard. Your grillet or frying need to be med high heat. You will see the torillas bubble and rise. They should have brown stops on them. Enjoy.

    Proud of myself, we are having tacos tonight and I forgot to buy tortillas. And i was not going to run to the store, so we are making these. The dough was way too loose to kneed so we ended up adding another cup of flour. It's resting now so we'll see how they turn out. Fingers crossed!

    I have never attempted to make tortillas, but I want to try to learn. This is a good recipe to follow.

    Can I use my tortilla press that I got for Christmas, my mom has noticed that I have been trying to do more MYO recipes, and she thought that could try my hand at making my own Tortillas, Can I use a press for the flour ones as well.

    Tortilla presses are usually used for corn tortillas that use mass and no leavening agent (baking powder). But, this dough is so forgiving, it may work. Use a gallon zipper bag as a liner for the press. Otherwise the dough will stick.

    This seems like it will be an easy recipe! Thank you. I'll give it a test this week.
