Flour tortillas are popular in northern Mexico, whereas corn is favored in the central and southern regions. It is just a matter of what grows where. Corn tortillas are rarely used in Tex-Mex enchilada dishes, because unless homemade, they tend to break apart when trying to roll them up. I use them to make stacked enchiladas, which are found in West Texas and New Mexico. Handmaking flour tortillas is not difficult at all. You'll need the ingredients, a rolling pin, spatula, and a skillet. Also, have a container ready to hold the fresh tortillas. I am posting a basic recipe, plus 4 varieties of flavored ones: onion, garlic, cumin, and adobo. See links below for adobo and taco seasonings, or purchase Sazon from a Latin grocery. YouTube has several how make flour tortilla videos. If you're a novice, you might want to watch one first.
