Homemade Tortillas Recipe"I usually have to double this recipe because we go through them quickly." Tender, chewy and simple, you'll never use store-bought tortillas again. 


  • Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Yield: 8 Servings
102030

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Stir in water and oil. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10-12 times, adding a little flour or water if needed to achieve a smooth dough. Let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Divide dough into eight portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 7-in. circle.
  • In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook tortillas over medium heat for 1 minute on each side or until lightly browned. Keep warm. Yield: 8 tortillas.

Well wrapped tortillas keep in the freezer for up to a month . Thaw overnight in the fridge and reheat before using.

I've made my own....here's a tip:  after removing them from a skillet, place them in a gallon-sized plastic bag and leave it unsealed until you're done.  The steam they generate helps keep them warm and soft.
