How to Make Homemade Tortillas

Updated on July 7, 2015

Homemade Tortilla Recipe

Tortillas are one of those things that can be used for a multitude of meals. It can be very hard to find a good (and easy) tortilla recipe. This recipe is very easy, and tastes great.

Ingredients:

2 cups of flour (whatever kind you prefer)

1 teaspoon of sea salt

1 teaspoon of coconut oil (the expeller pressed variety is the best to use due to no coconut flavoring) You can also use lard instead.

3/4 cup of (warm) milk, you can also use water or whey as substitutes


Real Mexican Tortillas

Mix together the dry ingredients, now cut in the coconut oil (or lard) into your flour (like pie crust.) It will be lumpy. Add your milk slowly, until a ball forms. Now knead the dough for about 2 minutes, cover for 20 minutes.

After your dough is done resting, divide the dough into 8 balls. Next you want to roll out each one as thin as you can forming them in as circular of a shape as possible.

Cook them for about 30 - 35 seconds on each side, on medium heat. Serve warm

      This is great! I recently got into baking and would love to try this (even though it's frying)

      Have you ever tried it with wheat flour or added spinach into the tortillas? :) I may have to begin experimenting!
