My grandmother, mother's side, would make these during the winter season when I still lived in South Texas. She would get up every morning to make her homemade flour tortillas as well. Absolutely tasted great with the Ranchero Beans! I hope you try it and tell me how it came out for you! If you like to mix up the recipe, go for it!
