How to Make Homemade Tortillas

Have you ever wanted to make your own tortillas, instead of the ones you buy at the store?  Well, now you can with Nancy's great instructions and demonstration video.  Homemade tortillas are quite delicious - no contest that they are way better than store-bought! And the ingredients are simple - you probably already have everything you need.  So take a little time and effort to make your own tortillas.  

These tortillas are a little fluffier than store-bought tortillas.  They are great for tacos & quesadillas.  But they may be a little small and fluffy for burritos or other rolled recipes.  Nancy just puts some cheese on top of one tortilla, and then stacks another tortilla on top of cheese to make a quesadilla.  You can cook it in a skillet, but Nancy just microwaves until the cheese is melted!

This recipe makes about 52 tortillas.  That's a lot!  You may be tempted to eat them all that day (they are really good!).  Plan out how you can use tortillas - breakfast, lunch, and dinner!  Here are some healthy options to use up those tortillas:

  • Vegetable Cheese Quesadillas - this recipe uses 6-inch tortillas, so you might could get an extra quesadilla out of the recipe
  • Taco Night Tips - great tips including a homemade seasoning mix
  • Breakfast Burrito - you could just roll up to make a taco, or put filling between 2 tortillas and grill for a quesadilla!
