Homemade Tortillas

My husband, Blake, has been making this for quite a few months now and we all love them. These homemade tortillas, like so many other things, are much better homemade compared to the store bought ones.

What you need:

  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp butter/margarine
  • 1 1/2 cups water

How to make Homemade Tortillas:

Mix all ingredients together. Place a floured surface and knead for a few minutes.

Divide the dough into 24 equal pieces and roll them into a ball.

Start preheating a pan over med-high high. Using a well floured rolling pin roll out each ball into thin round tortillas.

Place tortilla onto hot pan, cooking until golden and bubbles start forming on each side.

It takes a lot of work, but so worth it. We stopped buying them and instead started freezing them to have on hand.

Five simple ingredients, that you probably already have in your house, compared to the list of ingredients on the package of store bought.

We are planning on picking up some sun-dried tomatoes, dicing them and adding it to the dough next, maybe trying some pesto and other things as well for some variety. You can get really creative with your own homemade tortillas when you make them.

If any of you try them I’d love to know what you think of them.

We have tried to use a tortilla press with this recipe, but the dough is too thick to use it well. You can try, but in the end Blake decided to just do the extra work and roll them out himself.
