We love tortillas around here. We use them for fajitas, sweet potato bean burritos, hummus wraps, enchiladas… Today I was making homemade tortillas in bulk in order to freeze several. I was also making sweet potato bean burritos to both freeze and have for lunch. Yum!
Did you know that it is easy to learn how to make tortillas at home? Today, I want to show you in pictures, how to do it. This is a simple recipe for homemade flour tortillas that you and your family will love.
Lets get started:
You’ll need two cups of flour from hard white wheat.
1/2 tsp of salt
1 tablespoon of butter
and enough water over the melted butter to make 3/4c (I tripled the recipe here!).
Now, add your water and butter mixture to the flour. Stir well.
After you have stirred to mix the dough, knead it for two minutes.
Your dough should be in a nice round ball once you’re done kneading!
Cover the dough with a damp cloth.
Set a timer for 20 minutes and let the dough rest.
Now, go fold some laundry!
Separate the dough into pieces. I usually make 8-10 tortillas with this recipe.
Roll out your tortilla and cook it for 30s on each side. They won’t look perfect, but they’ll eat just fine!
Enjoy the finished product!
