These are the best homemade tortillas that are super easy to make.


  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1 Cup Warm water
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable oil

  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Get out your ingredients.

    Step 2

    Sift in 2 cups flour, 1 tsp. baking powder, and 1 tsp. salt.

    Step 3

    Stir in the oil, then with your hands, kneed in the water until it forms a ball. I only used about 3/4 cup water.

    Step 4

    Flour a hard clean surface.

    Step 5

    Make small balls about the size of an egg.

    Step 6

    Place on the floured surface.

    Step 7

    Roll out. I don't have a rolling pin, so I used an old wine bottle. It works great!

    Step 8

    Place the rolled out dough in a hot cast iron pan. Let it cook for about 15-20 seconds on each side.

    Step 9

    It's that easy!

    Step 10

    I made black bean and corn tacos with the homemade tortillas. They were delicious!!
