Yeah, I cook my own tortillas...

...but I sure don't MAKE them!!
La Abuela: Flour Tortillas, 22 oz
I have recently become a bit of a tortilla snob. I canNOT find any tortillas (aside from getting them at Rosa's or some other place that makes them for you) that I really like. I keep getting different brands and they all taste like the plastic bag they come in. I have found a new love, La Abuela Flour Tortillas. These babies are actually cheaper (since you DO have to cook them yourself) than the regular ones you get in the bread isle. I found these at Wal-Mart in by the canned biscuits and stuff. MAN, are they good. You just let them sit out to room temp, throw them on a dry griddle of skillet for a minute on each side, and they're done. In two whole minutes you have a wonderful, homemade (sort of) tortilla. We had them with fajitas and they were great. I'm going to make some quesadillas tonight with them because if you put a little butter on them while they are in the skillet, they get a little flaky and crispy. Mmm. And just for kicks last night, I made one with butter, cinnamon, and sugar on each side. Whoa. I'm addicted.
