I’ll confess that I was a little scared to make my own tortillas. Since Geoff and I met, I have tried twice, and both times were disastrous. I think some of it was just my immaturity as a cook (overmixing, not letting the dough rest, etc.), but all the recipes I found just seemed hard. When I found one on Annie’s Eats, I knew I had to give it another try, and I’m so glad I did! Homemade tortillas were a staple in my house when I was a kid, and these totally lived up to the ones my mom used to make. I think that if I could have just one food for the rest of my life, fresh warm tortillas with butter would be my choice. So good! Recipe for the tortillas here.
We used the tortillas to make tacos with seasoned turkey burger, mozzarella, avocado, grape tomatoes, lettuce, sour cream, and some mango chipotle sauce that Geoff gave me for Christmas. Best tacos ever! (Except maybe those buffalo chicken tacos… mmm…)
P.S. Don’t you just love my iPhone pics? Seriously, I can’t wait until it’s light enough that I can take decent pictures of my food! Maybe I need to save up for a Speedlite… but really, who has an extra $300-500 dollars laying around? If you do, feel free to send it my way.
