DIY Flour Tortillas – A small batch

May 24, 2014 at 5:12 pm 2 comments

This is my 300th post everyone! Not all posts have been recipes, but close. A big thanks to everyone following Audrey Can Cook, making it fun and worthwhile for me to continue.


I will never buy flour tortillas again. So good, so easy!

1 cup AP flour
big pinch salt
1/3 cup warm water
1  1/2 tablespoons oil

Mix together
knead a few times
form a ball
cover and let rest for 10 minutes

Divide into 4 even pieces
roll out until very thin (about 7 inches in diameter)

Heat a lightly oiled skillet over a high flame
cook the tortilla until it begins to bubble and brown (about 1  1/2 minutes)
flip over and cook the opposite side

Keep warm by wrapping in a kitchen towel

These need to be eaten fresh and warm, that’s the reason for the small batch that makes only 4 tortillas. Recipe can be doubled very easily.

    I made these todayand I was very happy with them. In Tunisia there is no mexican food so it was a treat to have something so simple as a tortilla.
    I used melted butter instead of oil and they came out perfect.
    Thank you for this post!

      Thanks for letting me know about your success and your choice. I wondered if butter would burn, so I had been considering using ghee.
