Whether your grocery store just run out of tortillas or you’re looking for a fun and easy baking project, you’re in luck. Homemade flour tortillas are surprisingly easy to make in less than an hour, and the reward is delicious. In fact, the homemade version is so soft and chewy that we might never go back to store-bought.
Our homemade tortilla recipe requires just four ingredients that you likely already have in your pantry: flour, baking powder, salt and fat. (Bacon fat is the most flavorful choice, followed by lard and butter, but if you’re vegetarian or vegan, you can use coconut oil as long as it’s the solid kind.) Here’s how to make tortillas at home, you pro chef, you.
