Turns out, it really is incredibly easy. I don't have a tortilla press or an electric griddle, either. The instructions said to heat the griddle to 400 degrees. We cooked the tortillas in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat and they came out perfect. Also, I tried to roll out the tortillas with a rolling pin, but it ended up being quicker and easier to just pat them out by hand.
Yesterday, while shopping, I cruised by that same shelf and found the mix had been marked down again - to only ten cents a bag! So, I bought 2 more. I'm already thinking I should've picked up three or four.
We do our baking on Sunday afternoons. Today we've already made our waffles, pancakes, and tortillas, and right now the muffins are in the oven. (I'll be making some dinner rolls in a little bit, as well.) I found I could add making tortillas to the schedule quite easily. My children already love being the pancake turners, so now one gets to monitor the pancakes and the other takes the tortillas. We made 16 of them today. This week we'll be having enchiladas, sandwich wraps, and I'm going to take a stab at turning 4 of the torillas into taco salad bowls by basically FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS I FOUND HERE.
Since eventually I will run out of mix, and I sure can't count on stumbling across ten cent bags of the stuff, I went looking and found a WHOLE WHEAT TORTILLA RECIPE. It will be interesting to try this someday. :)
