With the cost of everything going up, I searched and found a simple flour tortilla recipe that I use often. My husband insists that I can never buy the ones from the store again. Give it a try, you won't regret it!

How to Make Easy Flour Tortillas


  1. Mix together the dry ingredients. No need to sift the flour. Blend together with a fork, mix well. Mix the oil and hot water together in a measuring cup. Slowly mix the water/oil into the dry ingredients. Working the flour into a dough. It should be good and sticky when finished.
  2. Sprinkle a dry, flat surface with a little flour to prevent the dough from sticking to the surface. Kneed the dough for 4-5 minutes. Once finished, return the dough to your bowl and cover with a damp towel for 20 minutes.
  3. After standing for 20 minutes, pinch off golf ball sized pieces of dough between your thumb and index finger. Roll into a ball. Repeat until dough is gone, with a single serving you should have about 10 dough balls. Cover balls with a damp towel and allow to stand another 10 minutes.
  4. Take one ball at a time and roll it out on your floured surface. With each pass of the rolling pin, I turn the dough a 1/4 turn so that it flattens evenly. Use a touch of flour if it should become stuck to the pin or surface. Work it out until you have an 8-10 inch flat tortilla. Repeat with all the balls.

    I generally will roll them all out, keeping them covered to avoid drying out, before I cook them. A cast iron skillet works the best for cooking. Cook the tortilla for approx 1 minute per side. Place directly into a folded sheet of tin foil to keep them hot.

    Store them in the fridge if they last that long. Enjoy a couple with some melted butter!
