Type: Bread Recipe

Prep Time: 10 – 15 min
Rest Tim: 50 min
Cook Time: 2 – 4 min each per side
Yield: 12 tortillas



  1. Combine all dry ingredients. * Tips: 1. If using a food processor, add dry ingredients into processor, mix, and then add in fat until finely crumbed, followed by slowly adding in liquid until dough pulls away from sides. 2. If mixing by hand, after combining dry ingredients, using a pastry dough blender, cut in the fat till finely crumbed, followed by making a well in center and slowly adding the liquid until a soft dough is formed.
  2. Transfer to floured surface and knead well using some bench flour. Dough should be soft and elastic – about 5 – 8 min.
  3. In a bowl covered with plastic wrap, allow dough to rest for about 1/2 hr.
  4. Divide dough in half, then in half again. Divide each piece into 3 pieces and make nice round tight balls of each piece – 12 pieces in total.
  5. Place on a platter, covered with plastic wrap and allow pieces to rest for an additional 10 – 15 min.
  6. Compress each ball into a circle, then using a floured rolling pin on a floured surface, roll out to about 7 – 8 inch circle.
  7. In a hot, un-oiled cast iron frying pan, fry one side until it puffs up here and there, then flip over and fry the other side until it is also speckled with brown areas. Continue until all tortillas are done.
