Homemade Flour Tortillas

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by petiest

These are super easy to make and taste fantastic--the best recipe for homemade flour tortillas I've tried. Try and find fresh rendered lard if you can. Try these warm smeared with butter or use in your favorite Mexican recipe--tacos, enchiladas, flautas, with refried beans, burritos...yum!

Great recipe! They went perfectly with my homemade carne guisada and refried beans. Mixing the dough was very easy, using my stand mixer. They were soft and a little chewy, just the way I like them!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix dry ingredients together (I use a food processor). Add lard and mix well. Pour water in until flour makes a dough. Knead for about 5 minutes. Make balls and cover with plastic wrap and let rest for about 30 minutes. Roll out on floured surface and place wax paper between each rolled out tortilla. Heat up griddle or cast iron skillet and cook on 1 side until bubbles and brown flecks appear (15-20 seconds). Turn and cook other side for 10-15 seconds. Place wax paper between cooked tortillas. Store in a freezer bag. Enjoy!
