Flour tortillas

Homemade flour tortillas

  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 16 - 6" tortillas 1x



3 cups all-purpose flour

¾ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

⅓ cup canola oil

1 cup hot tap water


Add flour, baking powder and salt to a medium bowl

Add wet ingredients, oil and water, to dry ingredients, stir to combine (this may take a minute or two of kneading, either in the bowl or on the countertop, to get all of the flour combined in the dough)

Roll out into a ball, dough will be a little tacky

Divide big ball into the number of small balls (tortillas) you will want to yield

Keep a towel over the dough balls and take one out at a time to roll flat into a circle on a floured board

Heat a skillet over med high heat and ensure the pan is hot before placing the tortilla in the hot skillet (use a dry skillet)

After 30 seconds, turn over to cook on the other side.

Remove from heat and repeat
