Recipe: Easy Homemade Flour Tortillas!

Hey cupcakes! This summer, I decided that I wanted to try making my own tortillas...and it was honestly way easier than expected. Plus, they tasted SO much better than the tortillas you purchase at the grocery store. I recently made these for my family when I went home for the weekend, and it inspired me to share the recipe with you all :) Let's jump right into it!

What You Need:
-3 cups flour
-1 tsp salt
-1 tsp baking powder
-1/3 cup canola oil
-1 cup warm water

What To Do:
1. Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder into a large mixing bowl.
2. Stir in oil until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs.
3. Add water water; stir until combined.
4. Scoop out balls of dough onto a floured surface (make sure the surface is covered, as this dough can be sticky). Make the balls small for tacos or large for tortillas. :)
5. Cover the dough with a kitchen towel and let sit for 30 minutes.
6. Roll out each dough ball with a rolling pin (using plenty of flour so nothing sticks!).
7. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat until it is super hot. Lower the temperature to medium.
8. Cook each tortilla one at a time: place the flattened dough into the skillet and cook until it bubbles (or the other side looks like a tortilla haha).
9. Flip and cook for about 30-45 seconds on the other side. It is pretty easy to tell when they are done :) Use your best judgment!
10. Repeat with remaining dough and enjoy! These can be used for tacos, burritos, wraps, etc. and are super tasty!

  2. These look delicious! I've never made mine from scratch before but will have a go at it. I usually eat mine as burritos or enchiladas.
