Flour Tortillas!

I had planned to blog about dinner this evening, but Molly woke up and asked for quesadillas. I figured, why not? So off to google I went for a flour tortilla recipe and came across this lovely number over on I made two changes; I used earth balance instead of the called for lard, and I cut it into 12 pieces instead of 24. I can’t imagine how tiny these would be I made 24!

Cut into 12 pieces

So the process went a little something like this:

Roll out into circle.
Roll out a tortilla. {Squint hard and pretend it’s round.}

Cook 1 min 30 seconds, then flip
Put in a medium heat cast iron pan. Set timer to 1 minute 30 seconds.

Roll out into circle.
While that one is cooking, roll out another tortilla. {Squint harder and pretend it’s a different tortilla.}

Cook 30 seconds more.
Flip tortilla and cook for another 30 seconds on the second side. {Squint really hard and pretend that I didn’t hit my timer before taking a picture and it actually reads :30.}

Rinse & repeat until you make all twelve.

Okay, so don’t rinse… adding water to the tortillas at this point would be quite yucky and pasty…


Where were we?

Oh yes!

Grab one and Enjoy!! {Or you could add cheese and make a quesadilla too, you know, whatever makes you happy.}
