Southwestern Homemade Flour Tortillas
These southwestern homemade flour tortillas are a simple but delicious twist on a plain flour tortilla. They will quickly become a must-have on taco night!
Nooooo….I had to go and throw in some of my favorite taco seasoning. (If you love that taco seasoning as much as I do, make sure to make a large batch of it!) It just so happened to be a very, very good decision. It gives them the perfect southwestern touch, just right to make them a little different and more special than a plain tortilla.
And can I tell you how amazing they are as the vessel for a quick cheese quesadilla?
These are really quite simple to make and you don’t even need a tortilla press to make them. It might make them prettier and more uniform but I always do love the rustic look. I made these without a tortilla press and they were still easy to make, and perfectly delicious. Sure, I’d love a tortilla press but I have kitchen gadgets coming out of my ears and no where to put them. Literally no where. I have a wok sitting on top of my dryer right now. I’m sure my husband is thrilled about that.
I don’t have a tortilla warmer either. Where do you people keep all of these things? I found that one of my Le Creuset pans lined with parchment paper kept these nice and warm without them getting soggy. Plus as an added bonus, it looks super pretty!
If you’re planning to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, make sure to add these to the menu!
(If you’re ultra-observant, you’ll notice these are old photos of E — this recipe has been on my to-write list for a long time now! It was worth the wait, trust me.)
