These easy to make tortillas are fabulous for tacos and enchaladas. They taste better than the store bought torillas and you know exactly what is in them.

Recipe Ingredients for Homemade Flour Tortillas

3 cups flour
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup hot water
1/2 tsp salt (optional)

Recipe Directions for Homemade Flour Tortillas

  1. 1. Put all dry ingredients into a medium size bowl.

  2. 2. Cut oil into the dry ingredients. Pour hot water into the bowl.

  3. 3. Mix with a spatula until semi-mixed.

  4. 4. Put flour onto the counter and knee the dough until it becomes well mixed.

  5. 5. Make 8 piles. Roll dough out into an 8 in circle. The key is to make the tortilla as thin as possible because it will double in height when cooking.

  6. 6. In a hot pan, cook for 1-2 min until golden brown on each side. Enjoy.
