Homemade Tortilla Recipe Cinco De Mayo


1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup cake flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons of butter or crisco
2/3 cup water

Mix all ingredients together, then knead 8 to 10 minutes in a smooth ball, making sure there are no cracks in the dough. Roll small pieces of dough into a ball,  cut small individual piece size and cover with a wet cloth or wet paper towel to keep the dough moist. Roll out each piece (around 8 to 12 pieces) to fit an 8 inch oiled sprayed fry pan.  I roll rounds very thin and cut out rounds out using an 8 inch round bowl with sharp knife along the rim edge. Keep dough covered so it doesn't dry out. Put rounds in the heated pan then cook on one side for 30 seconds until you see bubbles in the pan then flip cook  the other side 20 seconds or till a little golden. I do not stack these. I place them on parchment paper until they cool.

Wonderful recipe, Claudia! The bakery tortillas I used to buy have been discontinued...and the others available just stink. I'm so glad you shared this :)

They actually seem easy - I am so not a baker of much. Will give it a whirl - today's the day. Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Hi Claudia,

Your tortillas look absolutely wonderful. I never realized how easy they are to make from scratch.... Thanks for the inspiration!

It's the 6th here but I don't think 2 days of Mexican food would be wrong. I've got to try these.

Great recipe! I am fed up of buying tortillas as they have lots of preservatives in them. Homemade must be delicious. Bookmarking.
