Homemade Tortillas

When I have the time I like to make our tortillas from scratch.  They don’t really take a lot of time, but sometimes it’s just easier to open the taco box.

Tortillas -makes 8 small

2 c flour                         3/4c water

3T oil                              1/2t salt

Mix everything in a bowl, adding enough water.  Knead until smooth and let rest for 30 minutes.



Divide into 8 and roll out into circles (about 8 inches).

Dry fry over medium heat for about 45 seconds per side.  Stack and cover with a tea towel to keep them soft.


See, they are that easy.  I really should make them more often  🙂

The other day I used these tortillas to make quesadillas.  A good way to use up leftover roast beef.  AND it’s something Ella will gobble up.
