The recipe itself is super easy – it’s just a little time consuming rolling out each tortilla – if you have a tortilla press your job is even easier – the final ball size will determine your tortilla size

From here you can make baked or fried tortilla chips as well! Don’t forget to check out my Cheesecake Chimichangas video for a great dessert to make with your finished tortillas

    I think for me it is a big recipe lol May I cut in half and probably butter instead shortening. My favourite filing is pulled chicken with cream cheese and some tomato/lettuce. I Love that way to make it! I dislike some recipe that call for press. Really practical

    to keep the circle and make it easyier there is an old fashion gadget and it just squishes the circle keeping the shape

      yup – but I don’t have it = I have a corn tortilla press, but not a flour one – since it’s cheaper to just roll it out
