I am a firm believer that pretty much everything tastes better served in a tortilla!

I was surprised to find out that Homemade Flour Tortillas are a whole lot easier to make than you might think.

Using just a few simple ingredients that can usually be found in any pantry, you can whip up a batch of four tortillas any time you need to.

tortilla ingredients

INGREDIENTS
3 cup Flour
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
1 cup Warm Water

DIRECTIONS

Using a stand mixer, whisk dry ingredients until combined.

Add water and oil and mix, scraping down the sides as needed until ball forms.

Tortilla Dough

Mix for two more minutes until dough is smooth.

Turn out onto floured work surface and divide into 16 pieces and roll each into a ball.

Homemade Tortila Dough

Allow to rest for 10 minutes.

Preheat skillet over medium heat.

Tortillas

Roll out each ball into a 6″ circle.

Cook each tortilla on first side for about a minute, until brown spots form, then flip and cook other side for about 20 seconds.

Cooking tortillas

Stack cooked tortillas and wrap in a clean towel to cool.

If not being used immediately, store in a zip lock bag.
