These were fantastically simple! I don't have a food processor so I just kneaded the dough for a few minutes and then rolled it out with a rolling pin in between some cellophane. These were so fast to make yet I imagine that you can roll them out and refrigerate before hand and just pull them out when you want to fry them up (which I plan to do next time) I cant imagine spending money on tortillas with this super easy recipe! Love it!


These were very tasty! It did not however, makee 12 tortillas. It made 4 normal size for tacos, or fajitas.


Really good and really easy. I will never buy pre-made tortillas again.


I thought this was great.  I finally tried it last night.  I broke my tortilla press unfortunately, but that was my error, not the recipe's error!  Thank you! :)


I really like this recipe. At first was difficult getting them thin, by the third time they got better. 

I made quesadillas using the same recipe by adding food leftovers and folding them in half. 

I tried them with peanut butter and jelly and they were delicious too  :)


fufuberry, with whole wheat tortillas, you have to make them a little thicker and cook them very very quickly


I was a little skeptical about using this recipe- most tortilla recipes involve working and resting the dough for large amounts of time... I needn't have worried, though- these turned out to be super! The consistency of the dough made it hard to use a tortilla press for these, so I rolled them out with a rolling pin.  The texture was perfect. Kept well in the fridge, too. A+ !


Fantastic! I halved the recipe(I got 4 tortillas), added 1T each of parsley and chives. I added a1/4t kosher salt also. The only real change I made to the basic recipe  Is I used 1/2T each of sesame oil and olive oil. Pinch of sesame seeds for texture. I didn't have ground garlic so I only used onion.

They are soooooo Good.... did I mention they are tastey... yeah!  ;D :D

Posted a picture also  :)>>>


I just got done making these and they were delicious. Definitely better than any of the grocery store versions.


Okay... i must have done something wrong...... I used 1/2 white 1/2 wheat flour and halved the recipe.  I ended up with only 3 thin tortillas, and they got crispy when they cooked, they were not foldable at all.  What did I do??
