Are you a Mexican cuisine aficionado? If so, you’re no stranger to tortillas. On a scale of one to ten — how difficult do you think it is to make homemade flour tortillas? If you gave a number higher than a one, you’re in for a surprise. Making this Mexican food staple will take only four ingredients and half an hour of your time!

It’s that simple. After testing this quick and easy recipe, you’ll surely be ditching the store-bought tortillas forever, transforming your own homemade flour tortillas into burritos, tacos, and rolls instead. Ready to give them a go? Grab your apron, and let’s make some amazingly delicious soft, thin flatbread!

Steps

1
Done

Combine flour and salt in a bowl and whisk.

2
Done

Add very hot water and vegetable oil and mix until soft but not sticky.

3
Done

Transfer the dough onto your work surface and knead it until it becomes smooth.

4
Done

Divide the dough into 12 equal parts. Form them into the shape of a hockey puck and flour each on both sides. Cover with a towel and set aside.

5
Done

Heat a large non-stick pan.

6
Done

Roll out a piece of dough into an 8-inch circle and make sure it is the same thickness all around. Next, transfer it to the hot pan. Cook for 1 minute, then flip it over and cook until golden brown spots appear on both sides (approximately 30 seconds). Place the tortilla on a towel and cover it. Repeat with the remaining pieces of dough.

Keeping the freshly-made tortillas warm is the key to helping them stay moist, so be sure to stack them in a folded towel. Once they have cooled, it is finally time to enjoy them. Have a lovely Mexican meal!

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
