We LOVE Mexican food at our house. In fact, we eat it twice a week. We have taco night and then several days later, we almost always have a chicken fajita night too, which conveniently uses up any leftovers from taco night! All you have to do is cook the chicken. 🙂
Since we eat a lot of Mexican food, we go through tortillas fast. Just the other day I went to make a quesadilla for my daughter only to discover that our tortillas were all gone. That’s where this recipe for homemade tortillas comes in. It is so simple, you can easily whip up a batch for your Cinco de Mayo celebration!
The recipe is from The Pioneer Woman (if you can’t tell already, I love her). I could not believe how easy it was. The dough comes together in minutes and then it rests for one hour. When you’re ready to cook the tortillas, simply pinch off some of the dough and roll it into a ball. Then, simply roll all the dough balls out (very thin) and cook them. If you’ve ever cooked tortillas before, you know that they take less than a minute. I literally had 12 hot tortillas ready to serve in 15 minutes! An added bonus was I had extra dough, so I rolled it into 12 more balls and froze them for later. Now we can have fresh tortillas anytime. My children had them today with honey drizzled on top, which I highly recommend!
