From the expert

Okay we all know that homemade fresh flour tortillas are way better than the store bought kind. We also know that making flour tortillas from scratch can be messy and time consuming. A few weekends ago while having breakfast at my Mom's I noticed her tortillas were both fresh and fast. I knew they were not home-made. My Mom refuses to make homemade thanks to a remark about the shape of her homemade tortillas my Pops made. Way to ruin it for the whole family. So how did she get fresh homemade taste without the actual making at home part? This was her secret......

Now for all I know these have been around for forever but they are new to me. I was lucky enough to find them at our local grocery store. In the refrigerator section. They cost about $3.50 for 18 tortillas, so about the same price I would spend on the regular flour tortillas. And they are from Tortilla Land, so you know they have to be good.

When you take them out of the package they feel like stiff dough. Almost see-thru. After you heat up your comal, just throw on a raw flour tortilla. In a few seconds the tortillas begins to get its usual white coloring and it bubbles up with goodness! A few flips and you are good to go. These tortillas are so freakin' good that just a little butter and you have a very yummy snack.

So go out and find some. Buy a comal and cook up some of these bad boys. Trust me, I am a Mexican-American with a degree in Chicana/o Studies, which makes me the leading authority in all matters tortilla.
