Cinco de Mayo is huge in Texas. In fact, I already have plan on Thursday to celebrate Cinco de Mayo – independence from Mexico. Even if you’re not from Texas, why not enjoy some fun Mexican activities. Try the homemade tortillas below.
Get ready to make your own homemade tortillas. It’s fun & easy!
This is one of our family’s favorite projects – making tortillas for Cinco de Mayo. I love Mexican food, so cooking is the perfect activity for this holiday.
Recently, I posted a new enchilada recipe, Avocado Chicken Enchiladas and have a few more to share. I even have a diet chicken taco recipe…really! I hope you won’t mind if I post several recipes this week.
It’s Cinco de Mayo – time to learn how to make tortillas.
Let me share how you can do it at home. Then, you can see Hunter’s Spanish class making tortillas. Of course, Hunter’s tortillas were great because my friend, Abigail, guided them along. Abigail is a pro, making tortillas for 25 years.
You’ll need to buy some Maseca. If you can get your hands on a tortilla press, that will help. Abigail got one for me when she was in Mexico one year. If you don’t have a tortilla press, use a rolling pin.

Well, that’s it. How to make tortillas in a few, easy steps.
Yummy…warm corn (homemade) tortillas. I have a little dough left, so I’m heading downstairs to make a few more tortillas for dinner tonight. I’ll heat up some beans and rice to make a meal.
