Homemade Flour Tortillas, should have shared this recipe long ago! One day I went through the recipes on my blog, I do this often so not to post a recipe I’ve already posted (it is possible if you were me), I was amazed that there are no Mexican dishes on my blog, hence today I’m sharing Homemade Flour Tortillas.

Tortillas made with flour or corn, and in this recipe, I am using flour only. In my recipe, there is no lard, and no baking powder.

These tortillas are delicious and are far much better than store bought, since it has no preservatives, nor that acidic smell and taste you sometimes find in store bough tortillas.

You can freeze these flour tortillas for 6 months, just place a parchment paper between each flour tortilla, to prevent it from sticking together.
