I struggled a lot with tortillas that tasted like paste or turned into hockey pucks until I found this fail proof recipe. These tortillas are easy and delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together dry ingredients.
  2. Cut in shortening.
  3. Stir in two cups very hot water.
  4. On a floured surface, knead the dough for about 2 minutes.
  5. Place in a bowl, cover with a dish towel, and let sit for 30 minutes.
  6. Knead dough and form into balls.
  7. Roll them out as thin and round as possible.
  8. Preheat a griddle or cast-iron skillet.
  9. Slather the skillet with butter -- (yes, I see other people recommend an ungreased baking surface but I like to slather mine with butter).
  10. Cook tortillas one at a time, flipping when a bubble forms.
  11. I then like to slather the cooked tortillas with additional butter because it makes them taste yummy.
