Have you ever had a homemade flour tortilla? My mouth almost waters thinking of it. They are SO good, like so good you should probably go make some right now. Sometimes, I just eat them plain. I rip a little piece off, come back to it rip some more off (because duh I am not going to eat the whole thing), well uh, until the whole thing is gone. Whoops. But it’s totally worth it!
I had never made homemade flour tortillas, I never even had thought of it, until I wanted to try it. And now this is all I want. So, if you’re like me and not sure if you want to go through the work of making homemade tortillas ( which isn’t actually that bad) just do it! Your family will thank you later.
I like the make these thicker than probably most people, which doesn’t yield with you with as many, but the thickness is the way to go! I also am not talented in the shaping of dough department. My tortillas are always, we’ll go with
crazy fun shapes instead of nice circles, but hey it gets the job done.
This is not my original recipe. But it’s too good to need altering and I have been using it since 2016.
Do yourself a favor- make these! And then tell me about it! <3
-Best Homemade Tortillas-
- 3 cups Flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/3 cup neutral oil
- 1 cup warm water
- . Take your stand mixer. Attach the dough hook. Put your flour, salt, and baking powder- give those a good mix. Start your mixture at medium and add your oil and water. Mix until combined, stopping to scrape the sides if need be. Your dough should be pretty smooth and not tacky. If it’s too hard to work with add a little bit of flour.
2. Remove from the bowl and divide into 8-12 depending on the size you want, even shaped balls. Spray a plate with spray oil and put the balls on the plate and cover with surran wrap and let the dough rest for 15 minutes.
3. Heat up either a non-stick skillet or a skillet you would cook pancakes on. Heat at medium heat.
4. Take your rested dough ball one at a time, and roll out on either a lightly floured service, or a Silpat. Roll your dough ball out in a circle. I like mine thicker, and this dough tends to make thicker, smaller, tortillas. once it’s rolled out place on an un-greased non-stick skillet and cook for about 30 seconds, and flip and cook the other side for 30 seconds. Remove and put on a plate with a towel over it, while cooking the remainder. Repeat with the other balls, if you have a large skillet you can cook multiples at a time.
If you made this and enjoyed it, I would love to hear about it in the comments or #courtneyshomestead. Thanks so much for your support! <3 Courtney
