Homemade Flour Tortillas

A few weeks ago I found myself craving tacos with no store bought tortillas in the house. I searched the web and came across an easy flour tortilla recipe over at Tasty Kitchen.

Who doesn't have all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, canola oil, and water in the house? Betty Crapper always does.

After making the tortillas, Betty Crapper will never again buy store bought tortillas. They really are much better than store bought. Super easy to make with just a handful of ingredients you can easily pronounce.


Yes you have to get your hands dirty. You will know when to stop mixing when the dough stops sticking to your fingers.

It is harder to roll out perfect circles than you think. Betty Crapper frequently makes tortillas that belong on a Rorschach test.
