    In college I dated a Mexican woman who taught me her family recipe for tortillas. The fat is always lard, the water should be warm (or at least room temp) and the cooking surface should always be cast iron. You can get a comal but I just use my standard Lodge skillet. A tortilla warmer or basket with a cloth on top will keep them warm.

    Unfortunately I don't know what proportions she used anymore, but I keep those tips in mind and just adapt them for any recipe I find off Google.

    Mr. Bones you will love fresh corn tortillas! Maseca is easy to work with, I have not tried the ready made masa because I don’t know what the shelf life is on it. But, definitely find some! So much better!

    I've made this recipe a couple of times and it makes really good tortillas.



    And, yeah, hog fat is key.

    These sound really really good, Brother!
    I might haveta sub on th peppers, since Hatch only avalaible here by mail, frozen, or canned, but that jus means I git to experiment. I'm totally cool wit dat.
    I can do up some peppers, I'd reckon.
    This opens a Door, amigo.

    Mr. Bones has it right. Bacon grease in my flour tortillas are the secret ingredient. Stick to animal fats rather than Crisco or oil.

    Yes, Shannon's recipe is great. Love Kent and Shannon. They have a great youtube channel and are just good people.

    I've made flour tortillas, they were pretty good, but there is very little variation in the online recipes. I don't remember which one I used, but the fat was vegetable oil and no spices or herbs. I didn't quite roll mine thin enough. They weren't so much better than store bought that I'd do it often. But if you can't get store-bought, then it's definitely worth it. I would like to try making corn tortillas though.

    I've used Shannon Rollins receipt with good success, though I usually use lard instead of shortenin. Definitely include th bacon grease!

    Most times I jus buy some, but that's not always possible, here lately.



    Betcha HouseHomey has a good one to contribute.

    Recipe for Tortillas?

    It seems like another victim of the mad buying syndrome is ready made tortillas. Would anyone like to share a recipe for homemade tortillas? Thanks!
