Homemade Flour Tortillas are so simple to make at home and my recipe uses extra virgin olive oil instead of the normal shortening so they’re healthier too!
Tortillas are a staple around our house- always have been, actually! My kids have always like to made quesadillas or tacos or just eat them with butter and sugar/cinnamon too! So, having them in the fridge is pretty much a given.
Flour Tortillas are super simple to make at home~ in fact, they’re so simple that you could have the kiddos help make them with you!
