Years ago as a young mom, I just assumed it was rocket science to make your own flour tortillas. Had I known they were this easy, we would have had them as often as sliced bread. (Sorry kids - I didn’t know!) With a food processor they’re ready in minutes, by hand - just a few more. Delicious!
My sister-in-law, Peggy, was one of those iconic moms that did EVERYTHING. You know the type of person I’m talking about - totally ‘together’. She made everything by hand, AND her kids loved her for it. She made homemade flour tortillas for the huge family parties we always had when one of the cousins had a birthday. She rolled out tortillas all day long so everyone could enjoy them that night. I remember asking her if they were hard to make - and she smiled and emphatically said “no”.
