Handcrafted Tortillas

Are you like me? Do you frequently buy packages of tortillas at the grocery store and either 1) fail to use up the entire package before they start going bad, or 2) wish that they didn’t taste slightly better than pliable cardboard? I’ve always wanted to try making my own, but worried that I would fail miserably because I put them in the bread category and I cannot make good bread to save my life. But, since tortillas are typically yeast-free, I thought I might stand a small chance and I remembered that there was a recipe from Laura Lein-Svencner for them in Flavor for Mixed Media by Mary Beth Shaw.

When I looked at the recipe I was completely tickled that the list of ingredients was so simple! (A.k.a., not scary!) I felt confident enough to give it a try and if you’ve wanted to make tortillas also, you really should feel confident, too. So thanks so much, Laura, for making my life simpler!

And yes, there are other recipes in Mary Beth’s book that I plan to try out as well, including what sounds absolutely mouth watering to me, Misty Mawn’s favorite sandwich—The Veggie Reuben. If you’ve tried any recipes from the book, I would love to hear about it! For now though, I’m going to go make a mushroom quesadilla . . .

    Hey, what I want to know is what is that thingy that the tortilla is being rolled out on? Some cool non-stick mat or something? I want one! What is it and where can I get it?

      I’ve had this mat for years. It’s a silicone mat that I’m pretty certain came from Pampered Chef. It really is pretty cool, I have to say. 🙂
