It's a homemade tor-tee-ya!....or is it a tor-til-ah

A few weeks ago I was at my sister's house to watch her three youngins' so she could clean the house and get some things done that needed to get done.  She recently has been into making her own bread, pizza dough, and tortillas. While the two older kids watched Dora, and the youngest bouncing away in his bouncer, my sister decided she wanted to make tacos with a homemade tortilla recipe.

After we got everything cooked (with some flavoring of my home grown cilantro), she let me have a taco and I can't even begin to describe the delicious-ness the tortilla.  At first I was skeptical of eating a homemade tortilla because my mother and I made one before and it called for lard and when we cooked it, there was no flavor and it was just not good. With that carved in my mind, I ate the tortilla thinking it was going to be gross and bland but it was not and I'm still in shock that I enjoyed it so much.

A week after I went searching on the Internet for a tortilla recipe because I wanted to make tacos the next night, and I couldn't find any that I went through on Tasty Kitchen that didn't have any lard in it so I went through my bookmarks and there it was, the recipe for the tortillas! I do recommend trying out this recipe because you will not be disappointed with this recipe!

Thanks so much Homesick Texan! I would be having terrible thoughts about homemade tortillas without this recipe!
