You should eat a homemade tortilla with butter! It's so good, you just heat up the tortilla and then spread butter all over one side of the tort and then roll it up it's so good!

I bet his "tortillas" crack in half as soon as you try and fold them when they are cool. I use 1 Tbls shortening or lard per 2 Cups of flour. Works really for me. Roll thin and then cook on med high for 10 sec a side. No need to rest dough or anything and its lower in fat.

Help me! I am not getting the bubbles when we put them on the cast iron griddle (MH heat) so mine are coming out more dense. Flavor is good though. Ideas?
