Tortillas can make or break a taco, enchilada, or other Mexican themed meal. There is just something about homemade tortillas…and boy do I have a great and oh so easy recipe for you! But to give credit where credit is due, it is not my original recipe. This recipe is Mark’s, hence the name!
Mark graciously gave me permission to use his recipe, and I am so glad he did, because I think you guys are going to love it. This recipe is super easy (kind of fits for the blog, right?) and tastes great. You will never be in a bind for tortillas again because this calls for ingredients you will have on hand, and be made in just a few minutes.
- 4 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 1/4- 1 1/2 Boiling water
- Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together.
- Add in the 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
- Stir it all together until evenly distributed.
- Add boiling water to achieve a good texture. Should be slightly sticky, but not so it sticks all over your hands. It should be soft, but not sticky. Have it stick to the table or counter, but not to your hands.
- Knead well.
- Separate dough into golf ball sized pieces.
- Roll out on unfloured surface.
- Roll very thin.
- Preheat a shallow skillet or pancake griddle.
- Cook on one side, flip and cook on other side, until slightly browned.
