Homemade Tortillas

Today over on the Tasty Kitchen blog, we’ve got a guide to making homemade flour tortillas that are puffy, warm, full of flavor, and dotted with delicious little charred pockets. Chances are you already have everything you need to make homemade tortillas tonight. Fill them with anything you like – burritos, breakfast tacos, quesadillas, or even just plain. Any which way you eat them, they’re so good you’ll think twice before buying them at the store next time!

Homemade Tortillas

Makes 12

3 cups Organic, Unbleached Flour
1 teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoons Baking Powder
⅓ cups Canola Oil
1 cup Hot Water

Mix the flour, salt, and baking powder with a whisk. Add the canola oil and mix with your fingers until all the oil is incorporated and the mixture looks like fine crumbs. Add 1 cup of hot water and mix until a ball is formed. Cover with plastic wrap and let the dough rest for about 30 minutes. (I have also refrigerated it overnight).

Divide the dough into 12 balls and roll out one at a time on a floured surface. Brush off excess flour. Cook on a hot, ungreased griddle over medium-high heat. Turn the tortilla when brown blisters form on the first side. Stack the totillas and serve warm.
