They were really good! I ended up making mine a little thick but they still turned out alright. Great for homemade quesadillas!

These were good and quick and easy but I still enjoy my Abuelas recipe better. She uses baking powder in hers along with the other ingredients. If your looking for an easy quick recipe this is it!

When we make this, after adding the water, I use a fork to incorporate it and get it started, then I switch to my hands to knead it. Don't want to overwork the dough too much. Also, don't use too much flour when rolling these out, otherwise they will get too tough. I will also sometimes make these earlier in the day and then roll them out and place them in the fridge separated by wax paper, so all I have to do is heat the pan and cook them right before we eat (they are best fresh).
