A quick and easy way to save a little money when on a tight budget with a lot os kids to feed.

"This was my first time making tortillas and they were quite easy. I used butter instead of shortening and they taste pretty good. I definitely needed a bigger workspace to roll them out on because they were a little thick. A tortilla press would be ideal, but a rolling pin will do."

Makes fantastic tortillas! I used less water than was called for per a friends' advice (and noticed a comment or two), and my trusty old tortilla press thatI inherited but never used. All in all, great recipe, thanks!
