December is coming and it is going to be CRAZY in our house, as I'm sure it will be in others also. With the holidays, birthdays, cooler weather arriving, it getting dark sooner and my being a bit lazy it will be so easy and tempting to just eat out but neither our wallets, nor our waistlines, can afford that. SO I'm determined to have easy to make stuff ready to go, no excuses!
We make our own tortillas and I tried freezing them once, after rolling them, and it didn't go so well, why didn't I think to freeze the balls of dough like I do pizza dough? I don't know, the concept was apparently beyond my frazzled mind at the time. So I gave it a try, and it works GREAT! I made a batch of 16 tortillas the other day, we ate 5 and froze the rest. We had fajitas last night and all we had to do was take 5 tortilla balls out of the freezer, they were thawed and ready for rolling in 2-3 hours!
The recipe can be found here, after rolling them into balls and allowing them to sit the required amount of time simply pop them on a cookie sheet and into the freezer for a few hours. Once frozen remove and store in a pyrex container or similar and you're ready to go! Love it! And them, they're really good tortillas, you really should try them!
