Author Notes

My Son loves tacos, over the years the price of tortillas have gone up. So I have decided to make my own. My wife drinks the kool-aide so to speak, working at Whole Foods and all. I started using butter but i realized that shortening is better, Luckily there is an Organic Vegetable shortening. —Dominic Brannigan
