1 tortilla, 2 tortilla, 3 tortilla, floor!

OK so I kinda ripped that off the tequila joke but just go with it! We did end up with some tortilla on the floor that Zion (our dog) gladly helped clean up, thanks to the O who is learning to share. It is Mexican Monday in this household. I say that with all due respect, I love food from south of the border. We ended up just making tacos but the flavors are what was important. Corn, beans, meat and tortillas is what we were working with but I ended up full and satisfied.

The corn, beans and meat was nothing special but we did make homemade tortillas. And by we, I meant my husband made them. We have tried making them before but it has never come out quite right. But tonight they were very good! So from here on out it is my husbands job make the tortillas.

If you want to make your own, try this recipe...

              2 C Self Rising flour
1 1/4 - 1/2 C Water
             1/4 t Salt (optional)
Slowly combine flour and water into dough. pull off piece about the size of a golf ball. Roll into ball in hand then roll out on floured surface until desired thickness.
In a hot pan with a little vegetable oil, cook on both sides until bubbles turn light brown and  get toasted. Now you can eat!
Simple as that, but taste so good. Store in plastic bag to keep soft.
Thanks for reading!
