Tortillas are one of those things. And our family is partial to soft tacos and quesadillas.
A local lady makes and sells delicious homemade ones, but when we haven't ordered any ahead of time, we make our own.
They might not be perfectly round, but they'll taste just as good!
Meanwhile we bleach wash our lettuce and tomatoes to prevent any amoebic problems.
Tacos are a little more time consuming to make now, but we've decided that it would be hard to go back to store-bought tortillas after enjoying these!
(Here's the recipe a fellow-worker shared with us:
3 cups flour
3 T shortening
1 t. baking powder
3/4 t. salt
1 pinch sugar
1 cup water (room temp.)
Mix flour, shortening, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
Gradually add water until crumbly dough forms.
Work with hands until dough holds together. Shape into a ball and knead until smooth. Divide dough into 12 roughly equal pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and let them set for 15 minutes.
Roll flat into 8 inch circles.Cook on ungreased skillet on medium heat.
When it bubbles, turn it over. When entire tortilla starts to inflate, take off the skillet. Makes 1 dozen tortillas.)
