Easy Homemade Tortillas

It’s Cinco De Mayo and we have an easy dinner idea for you. My kids loved it and I don’t think I will buy tortillas from the store ever again!

Tortillas are easy to make, so I really wouldn’t call it a recipe. You don’t need fancy tools and they only have 5 ingredients, so you know whats in them.

This recipe makes about 14 tortillas.

You will need:

2 3/4 cup of flour

1 teasp baking soda

1/2 teasp salt

1/3 cup vegetable oil

3/4 cup warm water

Mix the dry ingredients together and then add the oil and water and mix until it forms a ball. You can divide your dough into small 1 1/2 inch balls or you can just pinch off pieces as you go.

Warm a skillet to a medium heat.

Roll your dough ball out on a lightly floured surface until its flattened. You don’t want to stack your uncooked tortillas or they will stick together, so I roll as I go. Cook your tortillas until they start to bubble a little and then flip. They don’t take long to cook and will brown slightly.

Thats it. So easy.
