Now that running to the store for every little thing isn’t an option, I have been making my own tortillas instead of buying them. These are easy to make and you will look very impressive on your next Taco Tuesday. This recipe makes eight good size tortillas, but you can double the recipe if you would like more than that.
I could say that I intended to make them the shape that they are in, but I will admit I was going for a circle. They tasted just as good regardless of whatever shape that actually is lol.
You only need four ingredients to make your own tortillas and they are:
2 cups of flour
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup water
3 tbsp. olive oil
Combine flour and salt in a medium size mixing bowl. Add the water and oil and mix well.
Put the dough on a floured cutting board and knead for a minute or so.
Cut your dough into eight even portions.
Roll each portion into a very thin circle. Yes, circle. That is the goal anyway. Actually, the one shown below is kind of a circle.
You will need to keep flouring the board and rolling pin because they tend to get sticky.
Heat your skillet a little higher than medium heat. Make sure your skillet is hot before putting in the tortilla. Cook for only about 1 minute or so, the tortilla should bubble as seen.
What shape is that actually? It’s not even close to a circle lol. I think i need to practice my rolling skills.
Flip the tortilla and cook the other side.
Keep them warm until serving and fill them with fish, chicken, pork, or whatever. You’ll love them!
