Homemade Corn Tortillas

This is the real thing! A simple mixture of masa harina and water results in the most wonderful corn tortillas you ever tasted. The secret is to use a cast iron pan! You can buy masa harina at Mexican grocery stores or in the ethnic food aisle of large supermarkets.

Tortillas I

Rating: 4 stars 304
To Latinos everywhere, these are not only our bread but usually our utensil at mealtime as well! Some like big and thin, some like them small and fat, depending on the region of the country you're from and the way your grandmother made them!

Gluten Free Tortillas

Rating: 3 stars 18
My sons really miss flour tortillas since we have gone gluten-free. So I have tinkered with a bunch of wheat flour tortilla recipes to create one that fits our new diet. These aren't your traditional thin tortillas (basically because I press them by hand) but a nice thick and more chewy-style that reminds me of flat bread.

Cassava Flour Tortillas

Soft and pliable, these easy-to-make cassava flour tortillas taste similar to a whole wheat tortilla but are naturally gluten free. Use them for your sloppiest filling, and you'll be surprised how well they hold up and how delicious they taste!

Thick-Style Flour Tortillas

Rating: 4.5 stars 12
Most flour tortillas use lard or vegetable shortening as one of the ingredients. This recipe uses canola oil with the same great tortilla taste. A great alternative for those of you who are allergic to soy products. Add a bowl of green chili and then get ready to sop it up with a tasty tortilla. Store tortillas in the refrigerator in a gallon-size plastic bag or place in the freezer.

Simple Egg and Cheese Breakfast Quesadillas
Rating: 5 stars 3

This is a recipe that I made up after being disappointed by the Dunkin' Donuts® breakfast quesadilla. These quesadillas are satisfying and filling, and a good way to start your day. I make these the night before for my husband. He re-warms them in the microwave or the toaster oven and they are as good as freshly made. They can also be made in advance and frozen for future breakfasts.
