Tortillas are one of those foods that just taste so much better homemade. Similar to fresh baked bread, they melt in your mouth, coating your chosen filling with soft doughy deliciousness. Those plastic bags that tortillas come in and the distance that they often travel to get you isn?t very easy on the planet either.
I remember we used to go to this Mexican restaurant when we lived in DC where you could watch this old woman making fresh tortillas before they came to your table. Still warm and doughy, you could taste the pride that the woman took in her work. Yes, I realize that was a cheesy line, but yet so true.
