Last Minute Burritos


I’m loving this homemade flour tortillas thing! I can just up and decide I want to make bean and cheese burritos for dinner (with homemade refried beans, too, YUM) and I don’t have to have pre-planned and bought tortillas. LOVE that!

    Well that’s funny. I just bought some tortilla flour last week myself!

    Love your tortilla recipe-they are the best tortillas I’ve ever had! I will only buy tortillas if it’s an emergency!!

    Suzanne…you are an inspiration! Now once I get all moved into the farmhouse from the renovations I’ll have fun trying more of your recipes like these! Your Biscuits and Sausage Gravy were enjoyed for a second time yesterday…my hubby said to thank you again…Thanks!

    I made these the other day. They were yummy! Only one problem-they disappeared too quick. I made the refried beans to go with them too. The beans got initial lukewarm reviews from my daughter who went on to practically polish them off herself!

    Haven’t tried your recipe (yet!) but other recipes leave the tortillas hard and cracking and don’t roll well after a few hours and the next day they’re too dry to be worth anything, even after they’ve been wrapped tightly. Have you had that problem? If so, what do you do? Maybe home made tortillas are just one of those things that don’t keep and need to be eaten immediately! Not that THAT is a problem…haha! Can’t wait to try yours. I have a feeling they will be nice and soft because every recipe of yours that I have tried so far has been a raging success.

    These stay soft! I haven’t had any problems with them. As I cook them, I put them on a foil-covered plate and leftovers are stored in the fridge in a ziploc baggie. I just had a burrito for lunch with a tortilla I made last night and it rolled up soft just like the night before!

    Oh–and P.S. be sure you don’t overcook them! Tortillas don’t really even need to be browned. If you overcook them, they will definitely go hard on you. (Have no idea if that’s what happened with the other recipes you tried or not–might have been another reason those went hard–that’s just the only reason I can think of why the tortillas could go hard with *this* recipe because I’ve had success with them staying soft. So try this one!)

    I’ve made these twice in the past two weeks. We love them. My hubs has even helped. I did accidentally over cook one or two of them, but as long as I didn’t burn both sides they were fine. We’ve got extras in the fridge that have lasted days. Love this recipe.

    LOL! Too funny. I just made more flour tortillas today, too. In fact, I may eat a few more tonight. YUM! Great minds think alike.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
