Homemade tortillas


I’ve wanted to make homemade tortillas for years. I just never had the guts to do it. I looked around at many different recipes and decided that i just needed to make my own. I wish I had taken the leap and bought a tortilla press. Since everyone had loved these tortillas I made, I decided to invest in a tortilla press. It’s really hard to roll these bad boys out evenly and thin enough. If it wasn’t for it being flour, you might confuse this with sopes. However, they’re made of corn tortillas, instead. I think I’ve gained the biggest muscles by rolling out these tortillas. Get you a press!!

3 cups All-purpose flour

1 tsp Baking powder

1/2 tsp Salt

1/3 cup Vegetable oil
1 cup Water
Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together. Add the vegetable oil. Add in water, but slowly. Make sure that the dough is sticky, but not so sticky is sticks to things. I usually divide my dough up. Put onto a floured surface and cover with a towel for 30 minutes. Afterwards you can roll or press the dough out.  Then lightly brown both sides. When it bubbles then you know it’s ready.
