Tortilla (wheat or white)

Prep Time:

15 minutes

Cook Time:

10 minutes





About the Recipe


  • 3 cups flour – your preference

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ¼ cup oil (olive oil is the healthiest to use, but any vegetable oil is acceptable)

  • 1 cup warm water


  1. Mix dry ingredients, add wet ingredients and knead until you have a smooth ball.

  2. Cover with a damp cloth and let it rest for about 10-15 minutes.

  3. Divide up into 12 equal balls and roll out, thin (they will thicken up a bit when they cook.)

  4. Do not use flour to roll them out because when you cook them the flour will burn. If they happen to be a little too moist, just lightly dust the ball before rolling out.

  5. Fry the tortillas on medium high heat, with NO oil (that will make it crispy), on a cast iron skillet.

  6. When they start to bubble up, turn over. When it starts to bubble up again, they are done.

  7. Cover with a cloth to keep warm and serve.

These are very soft, very tasty tortillas!
