Homemade Flour Tortillas

We eat so many tortillas in my house each week – we have them for lunches, Mexican feasts and more. Since I learned how to make Homemade Flour Tortillas my life has changed! Homemade tortillas are way better than store bought ones and this recipe is perfect for burritos, fajitas, quesadillas and more.

To make them, you simply need flour, salt, lard and water. Start by making a dough. Once the dough comes together, knead it and divide into balls. The recipe yields enough dough for 8 large tortillas or 10-12 smaller ones. These will keep for up to 3 days in the refrigerator. To reheat, microwave for about 30 seconds under a damp kitchen towel.

Roll the tortillas

Place a griddle or nonstick skillet over medium heat.
