Homemade Tortillas

I didn't get tortillas in this week's grocery pickup but I really wanted tacos tonight.  I searched the Taste of Home site for a recipe and these Homemade Tortillas looked simple enough, only 4 ingredients.  

I used the KitchenAid with the dough hook to mix/knead the mixture, with a final few pushes on the countertop. It does take a little bit of practice to get them rolled out thinly to the 7" circle, but after a few I got the hang of it.  

I usually buy burrito sized tortillas, and these were more the standard size, so next time I'll double the recipe and still make 8 larger balls of dough.  Thank you so much to Kristen V. for sharing her super easy recipe!

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil


  1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Stir in water and oil.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10-12 times, adding a little flour or water if needed to achieve a smooth dough. Let rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Divide dough into 8 portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 7-in. circle.
  4. In a greased cast-iron or other heavy skillet, cook tortillas over medium heat until lightly browned, 1 minute on each side. Serve warm.

authorHello, my name is Cherine, but you can call me "Chicho" :) I am Lebanese and I live in Paris. Welcome to my internet kitchen, grab a cup of coffee, a macaron and get comfy! This blog is my recipe journal. It's where I write about the recipes that intersect my everyday life. Often the recipes are from my cookbook collection, my magazines, my favorite blogs... sometimes not, they might come from my mother, a friend, a neighbour... or I might write about a recipe I invented myself.
