Growing up in Dallas meant that there were a plethora of places with homemade flour tortillas, including our local Walmart Neighborhood (do those even exist anymore???? It was like a Walmart with only groceries). They had the tortilla presser and for $1 you could get a bag with warm (literally) flour tortillas. Oh my yum!
I have tried previously to make such a delight, but it was VERY time consuming and I wasn't super impressed. So when my sister pinned this recipe, I repinned it in a moment of tortilla-deficiency weakness.
Enter March 2 - Texas Independence Day. In the weeks leading up to this momentous holiday, Cheryl and I had grand plans of hosting a fabulous Texas day with our Texas friends. BUT life hit hard and plans changed.
On the day of, we had a small Texas gathering and I whipped out this recipe for our Texas Independence Day celebration.
Y'all, they were pretty stinking easy to make and SOOOOOOOOO yummy!!! I don't even own a rolling pin (thank you, glass cup, for doing the trick).
Here is the pin for the recipe:
Here are pictures of the process: (No, mine are not the cute shapes of tortillas, but who cares????)
First, I went to get the yeast out of the freezer and it spilled everywhere.
Cheryl promptly replied, "Our freezer has a yeast infection." Yep, that's my roommate. Always ready with a pun or joke!!! :)
Rolling them out, waiting to go into the skillet.
They cook really fast, so you have to watch them! Hurray cast iron skillet! You can do it on a griddle also or a regular skillet style pan!
All ready to stuff full of fajita-fixins'
