Homemade tortillas are not only simple to make, they are ridiculously delicious.

Units: US | Metric
- 13 cups of all purpose flour in a food processor* along with 2 teaspoons each of salt and baking powder. Give them a pulse to combine them.
- 2Cut up cold butter into pieces.
- 3Drop the butter into the flour and then pulse the mixture until the butter is crumbly and there are no bits larger than a pea.
- 4Measure out 3/4 cup of hot water. With the food processor going, very slowly pour the water in and let it mix until it just comes together.
- 5On a clean surface, knead the dough for just a minute until it is smooth. Use a little flour if you have to, if it is too gooey on our hands.
- 6Form the dough into a ball, cover it with plastic wrap, and let it rest for about 30 minutes,.
- 7Begin heating a clean, dry skillet over medium heat – preferably cast iron. Cut the dough into 12 equal portions.
- 8Roll a portion out as thin as you can. It’s okay if it isn’t perfectly round.
- 9Carefully drop the tortilla in the hot skillet. Let it cook 30-45 seconds or until it is just beginning to get brown spots, and is dry on the bottom.
- 10Turn it over and let it cook on the other side.
- 11Place the hot tortillas between some layers of towel to stay warm, and repeat with the other portions of dough.
