Fresh Flour Tortillias

Are you looking for a supper easy delicious recipe? Well this is as easy as can be. I have always been a bit scared of making breads and tortillas and to be honest all the times I have tried that have kinda turned out an utter disaster! We served our homemade tortillas with fresh grilled chicken, homemade guacamole and salsa and fresh beans! Its the perfect Cinco De Mayo recipe!


Recipe as follows:



  • 2 Cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 TBLS shorting
  • 3/4 cup water


In a mixing bowl mix together flour, salt and baking powder, add shorting and combining with a fork until coarse crumbs are formed. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour water.

Place dough on flour surface and kneed 3-4 minutes. Place dough back in bowl and let sit for 30 minutes. ( now you have time to prepare the rest of your meal 🙂 )

Next, cut the dough in 12 equal sections. Now you roll each section into 6-7 inch circles.

Heat skillet to medium heat. cook tortillas on until lightly browned ( about 2 minutes on each side) Once cooked place tortillas in towel so they stay warm.

Enjoy!! xoxo
