Tortilla making

Years ago, Adam and I bought a tortilla press from a little Mexican grocery back in Valpo. Well, many moves, and years later, we have decided to make out own tortillas again. We were making flour ones for the last few months, but went out and bought a bag of masa. We followed the recipe on the bag, and pulled out the old press. We explained to the kids what we were doing, and they got very excited to help. Adam showed them how to roll the dough into a ball, and place it in the press. They quickly got to work. That night we had tacos on our fresh tortillas. We had some left over so a few nights later, we used them to make quesadillas! Fantastic! And what a great fun way to include the kids in dinner time prep.
