Periodically I decide I want to make tortillas from scratch. The results tend to be uneven, probably because I’m only trying it periodically.
Tonight’s came out better than usual and were less hassle. I think there are two reasons for that — I didn’t make them as wet as usual, and I didn’t squeeze the tortilla press super hard. The drier, thicker tortillas separated from the plastic much more easily than in previous attempts.
I used a sandwich-size freezer bag. The thicker plastic seemed to help as well.
Cast iron skillets really hold the heat and lead to good color on the tortillas. (These are all 5-6″ in diameter.)
Combined with slow-cooker pork shoulder, cheese, and salsa:
