Home Made Flour Tortillas

Updated on October 17, 2016
5 stars from 2 ratings of Home Made Flour Tortilla

There's nothing like the smell of a fresh, warm, flour tortilla on your plate. Of course, it's a little more work to make home made tortillas opposed to getting them off the grocery store shelf but it's not as hard as it looks. This is a wonderful family recipe that will complement any Mexican meal. To create flour tortilla chips just cut your tortillas into triangles before cooking and fry in a frying pan with oil.

Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 50 min
Yields: 3 dozen

Ingredients

  • 8 Cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking power
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp crisco
  • 4 Cup warm water

Instructions

  1. Mix flour, baking powder, salt, 1 tsp crisco and water until it becomes doughy.
  2. Knead the dough
  3. Add another tsp of crisco and break dough into roughly equal sections.
  4. Roll the dough sections into balls and press flat. Use a rolling pin to spread the dough until it is about 1-1/2 inch thick. (use extra flour to keep dough from sticking)
  5. Warm tortillas on a flat pan, flipping them over every once and a while to cook evenly until dough is firm and slightly browned.
  6. Store in a cool dry place or the refrigerator to last longer.

Tip: Keep those tortillas warm before serving with a tortilla warmer.

      Great recipe! Very easy to make and lasted a few days in the fridge (maybe would have lasted longer but we ate them before we would know!). Thank you for sharing this with us! I am featuring you in my hub, "My Favorite Recipes This Week: June 23 through 29." I am wrapping it up now as I was so busy cooking that I forgot to post it!
