Making homemade tortillas takes a little bit more time than buying them in a plastic bag, but your efforts will be rewarded with delicious, nutritious tortillas that burst with lots of fresh flavor but no preservatives. Using whole wheat flour ups the nutrition ante, as well. Making them from scratch also allows you to use locally milled, organic wheat, if you are lucky enough to have a source for it.
