Homemade Tortillas

This is the first time I have made tortillas myself and they actually turned out fabulous. In the past they have always turned out hard as Frisbees, but not these! They are soft and a million times better than the store bought kind.

Total Time: About 1 hour start to finish.

Yield: About 11 large tortillas.

  1. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Add milk and oil.
  3. Stir together until mostly combined.
  4. Turn onto a floured surface.
  5. Knead for a couple minutes until well combined.

  7. Divide your dough into about 11 balls, about the size of a small plum.
  8. Roll each into a disk. I found it helpful to pick my tortilla up and rotate it after every go round with the rolling pin. This prevented it from sticking to my counters too much.
  9. Add a splash of oil to your pan, heated to a medium temperature. Add your tortilla and cook for a couple of minutes until it starts to bubble.

  11. Flip your tortilla and cook another 1-2 minutes, or until bubbly and golden brown.
  12. Repeat with each tortilla.
  13. Store any leftovers you may have in an airtight container in the fridge.

Those look so good. I've tried making tortillas before, but they didn't turn out. I will try this recipe. Thanks!
