When buying pre-made food, I try to find food that contains 5 or fewer ingredients and has ingredients that I can pronounce. I’ve searched different grocery stores and haven’t been able to find tortillas that meet my requirements. So, I began searching online for some simple homemade tortillas.
Here are two recipe for tortillas that I recommend. Both are good, but I’ll be honest, the white flour ones are better. Sometimes white flour just taste better.
This recipe uses white flour.
This recipe uses wheat flour.
I use butter instead of lard or olive oil like the recipes call for. If possible, get a tortilla press. I have to use my rolling-pin, but I hope to get a tortilla press at some point.
I’ve given up on trying to make them into a perfect circle and all the same size. Homemade tortillas taste the same no matter how “perfect” they look. I guess that is one thing about homemade tortillas – they may not look “perfect” like the store-bought brands, but at least they taste better.
You can also make these in large batches and freeze them.
Making tortillas can be a little time consuming, but trust me – they are much better than what you get at the store. Much better!
