Fourth of July celebrations are usually filled with apple pie, hot dogs and other typical American foods; I however, was feeling a little more Cinco de Mayo and decided to make flour tortillas.
I've been wanting to attempt making these ever since Bobby's grandmother visited a couple years ago. I was inspired again by this blog, but Bobby insisted I ask his father instead of using the recipe listed. His father then called his mother, who like most grandmothers, was unsure regarding specific measurements. Long story short, Bobby insisted I use this recipe instead, as it was deemed official by the Texans.
The most notable difference is whether or not to use baking powder. Measurements vary, but essentially, tortillas are basically flour, shortening and salt.
A bit time consuming, but so worth it! We filled them with fresh guacamole and shrimp or tilapia. I don't think I'll ever be able to buy readymade tortillas from the grocery store ever again.
