RECIPE: Tortillas

I’m back again with another recipe that is quick and easy. The bonus is, it only has four ingredients and they are common pantry items. Super simple to make and cheaper than store bought.

Let’s get into it.


You will need for 7 tortillas:

2 cups of flour (any type is fine.  Whole wheat, gluten-free, etc.)

1 tsp of salt

3 tbsp olive oil (or coconut, vegetable, etc.)

2/3 cup warm water

A bowl, a rolling pin, dusting flour, a frying pan and a spatula.


First you will want to add the salt to the flour and place in the bowl, then add 3 tbsp of oil.

Add the warm water and mic until well combined.


Next you will knead the dough with your hands for 1-2 minutes until softened and no longer sticky. If it remains sticky, add one tbsp of flour at a time and knead again.


Roll your dough into a log shape and mark out with a knife or a dough cutter (as shown in the picture above.)

You want to mark out 7 equal sections.


Once you have cut your sections, you will want to roll them into 7 balls.


Time to roll them out,  you want them to be very thin.  At this stage, turn the stovetop onto medium heat and have butter or a vegetable oil spray on hand to grease the pan.


You will want to grease your pan and lay the dough down.  Let it sit until it has bubbled up (for about a minute.) Then flip it over and let it sit for another minute,  if the bubbles are getting out of control, you can pat it down with the spatula.

This was very simple and these taste great!  You can freeze them individually on a baking tray and then transport them all into a large ziploc bag for use later.

I hope you enjoy,
