Ruth’s Chicken Tortilla

This recipe came from a family friend when I was a kid.  I have modified it (with the substitutions) as the first time I made this I didn’t have all the ingredients. I haven’t eaten this in more than 20 years and with one bite I was back home. Thanks Ruth.  And thanks Mom. 4…
