Luckily, this recipe only calls for 6-8 kneads before sitting for only 10 minutes. Perfect for a weeknight meal. I would never make actual bread on a weeknight with the 3+ hours of rising and 10-15 minutes of kneading. The thing I don't like about kneading, I will share with you, is the fact that it's completely necessary to use flour. Now, I do not like touching things that are super super soft (i.e. fresh fleece, cotton balls, flour) so needing to add flour just isn't the greatest. I also don't like touching the dough when it's super wet still, but I can get over that aspect of it.
I was a little worried when I went to "fry" these tortillas. First - they were completely ugly and not round. Second - all the recipe called for was Pam so it didn't fry as I would have expected. Last - they were brown rather than white (like you would find in store bought tortillas), but I think that just had something to do with the Pam being use. Even though they were ugly, they still tasted just as good as I would have gotten at the store. I halved the recipe so it only made 4 tortilla shells (some big some small) but they were perfect in every way.
I can't say I would make these again unless I was asked too. It's almost not worth the trouble. Our tacos were DE-A-LICIOUS though!! (It could have been because I put feta cheese on mine!) Thumbs up!
As for the recipe itself, super easy. Thankfully I still had the grits and some milk at home so all I really needed to spend money on was the green chiles... which was less than a dollar for a small 4 oz can. I probably wouldn't make it again, but I'm glad I was able to try something new. Thumbs to the side.
