This is a great idea! 😋
So simple and so good. I am doing this.
Let's see... Cook time = 10 minutes.
Make 12 tortillas, cook each 1 minute per side.
12 x 2 = ... 10 ???

I adjusted the time, but I cook more than one tortilla at a time, which I assume others do as well, so it doesn't take as long as cooking them one at a time. Sorry if this confused you. Hope you'll let us know how they turned out. :-) Uh-Ohh
Elisa Schmitz
This looks amazing. So easy and so delish. Can't wait to try this simple recipe!
Yes Ms Donna I'm hoping that you could explain do you cook the tortillas in the iron skillet or do you use a tortilla press or someone that wins and Sonoma I'm wondering what's the best way to prepare it and do use corn flour wheat flour or what have you what kind of oil would you use and how long if I may ask how long do you store the the rapperman Saran wrap wax paper aluminum foil on the paper towel and do you can you freeze these because it's a lot of times you end up making it and then you want to make some meals or even lunches and that's one know how long you store them sorry for so many questions thanks for what you do I really appreciate it I'll find you some really yummy meals
