Home Made Tortillas

My cooking goal right now is to make as many things as possible from scratch.  The next project I'm sharing is a home made tortilla.  I have made them in the past, and they are fun and easy.  

I pretty much use the recipe from this site, with a few minor tweaks.  

First, I mixed the dry ingredients together (2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 t of baking powder, and 1.5 t of salt) with 2 t of coconut oil.
Then, I added in 3/4 cup of warmed raw milk.  It didn't check a thermometer, but it felt warm to the touch.  
Once it was mixed in, I kneaded it until it formed a loose ball and let it rest about 20 minutes.  Then, I separated it into 8 smaller balls and let them rest for about 10 minutes.  
From there, I rolled each one out into a rough circle.  
To cook them, I just stuck them on a small dry skillet for less than a minute per side.  
They are done when they are speckled with brown spots. 
Now, I make them a little before I plan on using them, and store them in the fridge.  When it is time to use them, I throw them back in the warm skillet to soften them back up.  

They are so tasty, use so few ingredients, and are easy to make!

  1. You are making me hungry for tortillas...white tortillas!

  2. Mmm, delicious! I love the free-form shape of homemade tortillas - a million times better than store-bought! Have your tried whole wheat? That is my next project, I think!

  3. Hi Jackie! I found your blog over at Real Food Wednesdays. I make whole wheat tortillas all the time and find that they freeze beautifully. Next I need to master corn torillas.

  4. @Get Real Chris Hi Chris! How do you freeze yours, before or after they are cooked?

  5. I love homemade tortillas, and they are so much simpler than I thought they would be.
