  • Mix until dough starts to form.
  • Place dough on a clean floured surface and knead until dough is smooth. This will take 3-4 minutes.
  • Place the dough in a bowl and cover.
  • Let sit for 30 minutes.
  • With a dough knife, divide the dough into quarters. Next, divide each quarter into thirds. You should have 12 equal dough portions. Using a rolling pin, roll out each dough portion into a circle, about 6-7 inches in diameter.
  • Heat a skillet or a griddle pan to medium-high heat. Cook the tortillas until they start to puff up and are lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook until lightly browned on the other side.
  • Place tortillas on a plate and cover with a towel to keep warm while you make the rest of the tortillas.
  • Serve! Note-these tortillas are great eaten plain or you can make tacos, quesadillas, enchiladas, burritos, wraps, etc. They will keep in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. Reheat before eating!
