Page 97 Back in the kitchen, Mamá read the ingredients on the box [Bisquick]. “This has flour, shortening, salt, baking powder. . . . Yes, it has everything we need to make tortillas.”
ANNOTATION: Bisquick was invented in 1930 and was still popular in my family in the 1960s when I got married. My mother’s cooking advice to me as a new bride was to have a box of Bisquick handy. I also remember that my mother’s eldest sister, Ruth (Sandoval) Lucero sometimes made her tortillas from Bisquick.
