We love tacos around here. I make them a lot. It’s one of those meals that everyone at the table is always excited to eat- and without complaints- yay!
Switching to my own homemade Taco Seasoning from packaged taco seasonings was one of the first changes I remember making when I began to switch to truly homemade food.
But, this favorite meal of ours still needed a change…the tortillas.
So, we have recently switched from the store-bought pre-packaged tortillas to this homemade version.
And here is why- Instead of eating this along with our tacos: whole wheat flour, water, vegetable shortening (partially hydrogenated soybean and/or cottonseed oils), contains 2% or less of leavening (sodium bicarbonate, sodium aluminum sulfate, corn starch, monocalcium phosphate, calcium sulfate), salt, molasses, vital wheat gluten, fumaric acid, mono- and diglycerides, fully hydrogenated cottonseed oil, guar gum, sodium metabisulfite, soy flour, calcium propionate, and potassium sorbate (preservatives), enzymes. (found here)….
…we now enjoy tortillas made with only flour, salt, baking powder, lard (or butter), and water!
These tortillas are sturdy enough to hold all your fillings without falling apart, they are soft, and you will find them a little thicker than store-bought tortillas.
