Enjoy Taco Tuesday at home with this easy homemade flour tortilla recipe! If you're looking to up your home-made carb making skills slowly, look no further! These tortillas are incredibly easy to make at home and very satisfying to cook. They are made from very basic ingredients that come together quickly on a weeknight.

If you love tacos, fajitas, burritos, enchiladas, chimichangas etc... you will find this recipe exceptionally easy and delicious. The tortillas come out soft and lightly brown. We love having them with fajitas but they are hearty enough to use as wraps for enchiladas, sandwiches, breakfast burritos and more!

    Made this recipe tonight and it is delicious! I don’t have a cast iron pan, so I sprayed a nonstick pan with canola oil every 4 tortillas- magic! The perfect accompaniment for our meal. 😃

    Can you freeze the uncooked dough?

      I have not tried freezing this uncooked dough before. I'm not sure if it will work. I probably wouldn't recommend it. But you can freeze the cooked tortillas and defrost as needed!
