Ingredients

  • Ingredients 2 cups all-purpose flour1/2 teaspoon salt3/4 cup water3 tablespoons olive oil View Recipe Directions In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Stir in water and oil. 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. Divide dough into eight portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 7-in. circle. In a large skillet coated with cooking spray, cook tortillas over medium heat for 1 minute on each side or until lightly browned. Keep warm.
  • Test Kitchen Tips Other fats work in place of olive oil. Traditionalists use lard, but shortening or coconut oil can be used as well. Just cut it into the flour before kneading. Relax springy, hard-to-roll dough by resting it a few more minutes. The key to making tender tortillas: Keep a keen eye on them and adjust cooking time or temp as needed. If they're too crisp, reduce heat a notch, or stop cooking a few seconds earlier. For homemade chips, cut tortillas into wedges and bake at 350 degrees until crisp. Add a touch of oil and seasonings of your choice: We love sea salt and chili powder. Make the best flour tortillas with our step-by-step photos.
