About a year ago, a friend and I were chatting about our love for Mexican food, and I happened to bring up that I had been looking for a recipe for homemade flour tortillas. Within minutes, she jotted down this recipe and assured me that these tortillas would be wonderfully delicious. I was so excited to make them and was not disappointed! These are honestly the best flour tortillas I have ever tasted and are so incredibly easy to make!
makes about 12 tortillas (8″)
*I prefer to use all organic ingredients
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup oil (I prefer coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil)
1 cup hot water
In a stand mixer or by hand, knead water, oil, salt and flour for 2-3 minutes. I prefer to use my stand mixer with the dough hook on a low setting.
For best results, let the dough rest for 10-15 minutes after kneading.
Divide dough into eight pieces and roll out thinly.
Heat griddle over medium-high heat and coat with a small amount of olive oil. Add additional oil if tortillas do not turn easily.
Cook until dough begins to turn light brown when turned.
These tortillas are perfect for making burritos, enchiladas, soft tacos and quesadillas or served warm with soup or chili. I have also served them with butter, sugar and cinnamon for a delicious snack or after-dinner treat.
