These tortillas are delicious and are far much better than store bought, since it has no preservatives, nor that acidic smell and taste you sometimes find in store bough tortillas.

You can freeze these flour tortillas for 6 months, just place a parchment paper between each flour tortilla, to prevent it from sticking together.
