Of Homemade Tortillas and Chicken Fajitas


 4-29-14 003

My family considers homemade tortillas a real treat!  After numerous attempts at making round flour tortillas (I could make every shape but round!), we finally invested in an electric tortilla/flatbread maker.  With the simple, inexpensive ingredients that comprise tortillas, I’m sure we’ve more than made up the original price of the tortilla maker in savings.  PLUS – homemade tortillas are delicious, and you know what you’re eating!  The Cucina Pro Flatbread Maker makes the task so easy!  The appliance comes with an instruction book and great recipes. 


One of our favorite ways to eat tortillas is with Fajitas.  I’ve used this Chicken Fajita recipe for years, and it is a winner!
