When I was making tortillas one day, I was out of regular milk so I substituted buttermilk. While I was shaking things up a bit, I also threw in some leftover bacon grease to see what it would add. The result was a fluffy, supple tortilla with just a hint of smoke. It's my new favorite for breakfast tacos, though it's awfully good with just about anything you choose to place inside of it. But even though this flour tortilla works well with others, it's also mighty fine hot off the skillet, served on its own.
