Making your own tortillas is easier than you think


Homemade Flour Tortillas

Makes 6-8 tortillas

2 cups All-purpose flour, plus more for kneading

½ tsp Salt

1 tsp Baking powder

1 Tbsp Margarine

¾ cup Water

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking powder.
  2. Using your hands, rub the margarine into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles cornmeal.
  3. Make a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the water.
  4. Use a fork to gently bring the dry ingredients into the center until all of the flour is moistened. If the dough is still too wet, add a tablespoon of flour at a time to get the desired consistency.
  5. On a floured surface, knead the dough until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  6. Make balls out of the dough, about the size of a golf ball.
  7. Put the dough balls on a tray and cover with cloth or plastic cling wrap. Let stand for at least 30 minutes to rest.
  8. Using a rolling pin dusted with flour, roll out the dough onto a clean, floured surface until it becomes a thin, round disc about six inches in diameter. 
  9. Place the discs on a medium hot, non-stick or seasoned cast iron skillet and cook until blisters form on the surface of the tortilla. Flip and continue cooking until golden on the other side.
