Homemade Tortilla Recipe

Tortillas, famous flatbreads from Mexico made from wheat or plain flour, used for making chips, wraps, soups, and mains. They are easy to buy now-everywhere, but make them fresh yourself and taste the difference!

Just imagine how we as Indian try naan with variations like butter or garlic or phudina or cheese naan. Same way tortillas are used in mexican cuisine to try exotic recipe like fujitas, burritos, tacos, quasedillas, enchiladas and many other dishes. These are ideal for wraps and rolls. I just love tortilla with guacamole. It is as simple as delicious to have almost at time.
