FLOUR TORTILLAS

Well Hello there ! I was visiting Marilyn's blog at Marilyn's Maze the other day and her post read national tortilla day ,had a link for a recipe ,I quickly clicked on it and the recipe read, buy some tortillas and cut them and put in the oven I think it was sort of how to make  tortillas chips well enyway I was in the mood to make some and believe it or not I had been flirting at the idea ,but then I think about making everything .



I went to youtube and got a recipe and it read ,4 cups of flour and mix in 1/8 tsp of baking powder ,add 1/2 cup of crisco and work it together untill it is crumbely,  then in 1 cup of warm water add 11/2 tsp. of salt and knead it well to form a ball ,and then cover for 20 min, cut in little balls and put some crisco on your fingers and form into a round flat shape and  roll them out adding a bit of flour if sticky .


And there they are !! so deliciouse and fresh ,I also had chilli going at the same time ,and quilting no just kidding!!


 I managed to find kidney beans at a health food store ,they don't have them in reg. super markets over here they do have tortillas though ,but from now on I will be making them.
I also made one heart shaped just by chance!! I ate it.


And this is the final product my chilli and my tortillas with all the fixings, I  reccomend to try them, and thanks Marilyn!!, wish all of you a nice day.

Good Morning Theodora!
These look so delicious...I will have to try your recipe! My boys love tacos and tortillas...I make a breakfast sandwich with egg that calls for a tortilla...I'll have to try it with your recipe. Thanks for sharing!

Have a blessed weekend!

Looks delicious! I remember my Mom telling me about living outside California for a while in the late 50's and having to ask my Grandma to ship her tortillas...that seems so funny to me...but the home made ones look wonderful! Great job!
