Easy Homemade Tortillas

Have you ever wanted to make your own tortillas? To me, they just taste better when they’re made from scratch! These are SO good!! They’re super easy to prepare and only require a few ingredients. 

Here’s what you’ll need: 

Start out by mixing the flour, salt and baking powder together in a bowl. 

Add the vegetable oil and then the warm water and mix well until the dough forms. 

Knead the dough for 2-3 minutes. 

Roll the dough into small round balls. 

Flatten and roll out each ball into small/medium circles. 

Cook on a pan or griddle over low-medium heat for 1-2 minutes per side until done.

Yum! Serve with your favorite Mexican dishes. 

Try it with some Homemade Colorado Green Chili and Homemade Refried Beans

Delicious! 🙂
