I thought these were pretty good. You've got to make sure to cover them while they are warm to keep them soft. They didnt look half as good as the ones in the pic by Emily though. It's amazing how thin you can roll these out to and still be able to pick up.

I loooooved these. But they were kind of hard to roll up for enchiladas. Mine were kind of thick, because I had no rolling pin or tortilla press, so that's probably why they didn't roll as well.

These were better than what I always buy at the store.  I used a rolling pin and made them really thin....got about 20 large ones.

a wine bottle or other such glass bottle either floured or oiled also works wonderfully.  did it that way in panama living on an organic farm... mmmmm!!  i'll do this one soon, maybe adding some fresh garlic and potatoes, similar to the indian aloo parantha (indian potato flat bread).  sooooooooo many possibilities!

An easier way to flatten the tortillas, if you don't have a tortilla press, is to roll in a ball, put a sheet of plastic wrap on top, then squash with the bottom of a pan. My friend and I did this in college and it worked great.

Very simple recipe to put together, although flattening by hand was quite a task,  ;)  I'm really grateful for this recipe, cause it's difficult to find flour tortillas where I'm at in Korea, and when you crave 'em, you crave 'em.

I loved this-it was quick and easy and yummy! I used regular salt though. I made refried bean quesadillas!

A great and easy tortilla recipe.  Worked out wonderfully for our mexi-night.  All I need now is a tortilla press!  Flattening them all out by hand is sort of a drag.

Also, these keep great in a round, flat-bottomed Rubbermaid, for leftovers.  They also make great tortilla chips if you bake them.
