These are the tortillas I use all the time. I never by store bought. I love these. They are tastier and a bit thicker than the average tortilla. Very filling.

A very good recipe. Easy to work with dough & quick to put together. My only change would be to double the recipe next time. I made 10 tortillas but they were very small & very thin. Not like my usual homemade recipe, that produces a little thicker tortilla. The taste was excellent & the leftover ones, that after cooling were very brittle, we saved to use in taco salad. Thanks for sharing your recipe, multitasker!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine flour, salt and baking powder in a large bowl. Cut in the shortening to resemble crumbs. Add the water slowly until you form a dough. Roll dough in 1 1/4 in balls. Cover and let rest 20 minutes. Roll each ball out on a floured surface and fry in a dry preheated pan about 30-45 seconds each side. Keep warm by placing in the folds of a clean dish towel.
