This is a traditional Mexican bread that is so versatile. It can be used for sandwiches of all varieties, as a bread to accompany meals, or eaten while hot with lots of honey cinnamon butter.

There are many recipes out there for this bread, but I like this one for the bread machine best. I hope you will agree.
