Homemade Flour Tortillas Recipe #MissHomemade

Best Homemade Tortilla Recipes from Scratch



4 cups flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
2 TBS lard (no substitutes)
1-1/2 cups water


Whisk the flour, salt, and baking powder together in a mixing bowl. Mix in the lard with your fingers until the flour resembles cornmeal.

Add the water and mix until the dough comes together; place on a lightly floured surface and knead a few minutes until smooth and elastic. Divide the dough into 24 equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball.

Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Use a well-floured rolling pin to roll a dough ball into a thin, round tortilla.

Place into the hot skillet, and cook until bubbly and golden; flip and continue cooking until golden on the other side. Place the cooked tortilla in a tortilla warmer; continue rolling and cooking the remaining dough.

The best part?  I have included a decadent Mexican dessert page that is very popular with my readers.
