Homemade Flour Tortillas

Time: 30 mins


  • 3 -4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 -1 1/2 cup warm water


  • 1 Combine the 3 cups flour, salt and baking powder in large bowl.
  • 2 Either by hand, or with pastry blender, work in the shortening until crumbly (you can add a little more shortening if the mixture looks too floury).
  • 3 Slowly add the water (I start with 1 cup and add more as needed) to flour mixture while tossing with a fork.
  • 4 With your hands, knead dough vigorously for about 2 minutes, until it forms a nice dough ball.
  • 5 Cover with cloth and let stand at least 15 minutes.
  • 6 Take a ball of dough (golf ball size for small, slightly more for bigger tortillas) and roll into a ball.
  • 7 Roll in flour to cover.
  • 8 On floured surface, roll out dough evenly and very thin.
  • 9 Place each tortilla on a medium hot cast iron skillet.
  • 10 Cook for about 1-2 minutes on each side, or until the tortilla no longer looks doughy.
  • 11 NOTE: the ingredients are fairly accurate, but feel free to adjust to get the correct consistency.
