  1. i don't care if its round of not its the taste that matters..
    When i go home to the Philippines Ill make this for my family….
    I did bring tortilla press the last time i went and now i will bring tortilla warmer…
    Thanks for sharing.. ya the best..

  2. I have never seen such funny looking tortillas in my life. I now don't feel so bad about mine:) I love the idea of adding the bacon grease; can't wait to try it. Bacon grease is the secret to all my red pasta sauces – even marinara. People used to beg for my pastas when I cooked. I never gave my secrets away, but bacon grease was one of the main ones.

  3. Looks awesome. I am going to go try it right now….
    EDIT: Just made the dough. It's so soft and supple… I took a little ball and cooked it cause I was too curious πŸ˜€ It's tasty, too! I am going to wait an hour before cooking the rest, but I am already impressed πŸ˜€ Must make these for hubby. I am thinking Enchiladas for dinner this weekend πŸ˜€ Thanks!

  4. They came out AMAZING! Thank You!!!!! I am too "shy" to ask my Mom 4 her recipe (she hasn't made them over 25 yrs cuz of my dad's health concern) but these came out WAY BETTER than any "Mexican" heritage (even ones in full Spanish) YouTube vids! God Bless You 😊

  5. I love how people get offended at food and how people do things. I didn't slap street food "American" cheese burgers in Colombia on the ground cause it wasn't real american. You enjoy them for what they are.

  6. My photo is of a sada roti or a bake with a layer of peanut butter , then three types of raisins then a dusting of cinnamon it Is very delicious and healthy I think. I learnt from my Mom how to make the bake .Note the white flour had the healthy bran part removed so it won't spoil too fast. That's why I put bran in my flour based foods. The white flour can cause diabetes too so watch out !!!

  7. I apologize for all the,negative comments they all definitely need some,prayer good job I know how to make them but never used bacon fat but I will try it probably good flavor thank you for the,tip

  8. If you think those are better than Mexican tortillas, it because you have only tried store bought. Its like saying pizza hut is real Italian food. Don't judge real Mexican food with the Taco Bell menu.

  9. Thank you! My sweetheart makes killer tortillas, but she's too harried to make them as much as I want them. I'll use this recipe to roll my own (ha, ha). I hope mine turn out half as good as yours.

  10. Real Mexicans don't worry or criticize authenticity and pronunciation. Instead, they're honored that people from other cultural backgrounds have an interest in theirs. Great recipe.
