Tortillas from scratch
Wednesday, January 15, 2014

I can generally hold my own in the kitchen (it's taken me 15 years to get there; from comedy routine to slightly more than adequate), but I don't wanna spend my whole day in there. I like meals that are prepped, cooked, and done in under an hour. (Less time is even better.)

But y'all. My kids shower me with love, praise, and affection when I make these homemade tortillas. They're so good; but labor intensive, and so I honestly only make them a couple times a year. It takes way more than an hour. (Measure...mix...separate...let rise...roll out...cook....And it's worth it to just go ahead and double the recipe.)

The magic dough that makes my boys sing my praises.

Ryan and Dylan help by standing over the cast iron skillet and flipping the tortillas as I roll the next one. It's a family affair. 

Try them with these carnitas from My Kitchen Ecapades! We've found the most crucial step in the carnitas recipe is browning them until slightly crisp under the broiler. So, so delicious! 

Don't forget to save a few of your homemade tortillas for breakfast burritos the following morning with eggs, cheese, and a bit of your leftover carnitas.

Made them once & it wasn't worth the effort. Maybe worth another shot. The carnitas look delicious! God, I could eat a Market St breakfast burrito right about now.

Tina - Heck no! If your family didn't love 'em don't do it again! Too much work. Ha!!!!!

Carnitas, tortillas bookmarked and on the menu. Dr. Poe thanks you. Very cool that you can love on your family by making the tortillas - I love family traditions like that!
