Home-made Tortillas {Re-blogged}


Made a batch of tortillas night for the kids and had so much fun I couldn’t help but re-blog the recipe! πŸ™‚ It’s a great cooking project for the little ones! I had my 4 year-old sister in the kitchen helping me. She had a blast rolling out her own tortilla!Β  Home-made tortillas made healthy by substituting the crisco/lard for olive oil and adding whole-wheat!

Original Recipe Yield 8-12 Tortillas


  • 1 1/2 cups white flour
  • 1Β  cups wheat flour
  • 1 tbs baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/4 cup Extra virgin olive oil


  1. Combine flours, baking powder, and salt. Add water and oil. Stir until combined.
  2. Kneed on a lightly floured surface for approximately 1 minute adding additional flour if needed.
  3. Place a stainless steel pain on stove-top over medium heat. Meanwhile, form into gulf ball size pieces and roll each ball into a large flat disc.
  4. Place each tortilla on to the hot pan, 1 at a time, for approximately 15 seconds per side or until bubble and golden. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  5. Enjoy!
